I am thankful for the legacy he left behind. Family was the most important thing in his life and he made sure that his grandkids knew that. He also always talked about the importance of education as well. He worked very hard to complete his education at a time when it wasn't usual for a Mexican American to go to college. He started college, left to fight in the war, and went back to finish. I know the next few days are going to be difficult but I look forward to remembering who he was.

We were a technologically advanced school back then and had a VHS tape in the capsule. Best part is the it worked! It was so fun seeing former teachers and students!!
Here I am with my former PE and 6th grade math teacher.
This is my 1st grade teacher. I remember being across the hall from my mom and leaning back in my chair to see into her room.
Here I am with my AMAZING kindergarten teacher, not just because her name is Cindy too. I still remember learning with the "letter people" and just having so much fun in her class. She looks the same and has managed not to age a bit. She helped organize a luncheon after the opening of the time capsule which was fabulous! She has been at my elementary school for 32 years and is the only one still there from the 25th anniversary.
Here I am in Kindergarten with my principal, Mr. Y. Oh, how I loved Mr. Y! I didn't have to see him to often since I tried to stay out of trouble (for the most part)!
Here we are again 27 years later!
Mom and I had a great time visiting and reliving some of the past!
