Cristina, I met you when you were about 2 years old. I used to work with your mother's fiance - Richie Cabrera. He was suicidal after that plane crashed, everyone thought he was either going to do himself in our lose his head. He and your mother were going to get married. After the crash he used to bring pictures of you to work and brought you in once. This was about 30 years ago or in that area. I don't know what ever happened to him because I only worked there two years but glad to hear you are well and sound like a very together person. Nobody knows why things happen, supposedly there is a reason for everything, no matter how bad. You were a cute little thing!
