Nuestro Tio Raul: A great sportsman who kept his body and mind attuned to life for all of his 100 years. We always looked up to this successor as head of the Arroyo clan and model for a father. His remarkable feat of living for 100 years will be included in the family record of records. Ana Maria and I shall always treasure the days we spent with him and our cousins for his 100th birthday. It was a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that we did not miss and we were blessed to be able to bring his sister Josie along to celebrate this special moment. Now only Josie is left for the Arroyo Marquez that went to Philadelphia. We pray that we may be as good to her as were all of our cousins to our beloved Uncle Raoul. We know we will have help from above, for surely Raoul is in Heaven.
