Memories Timeline


  1. I just met Amado in the last couple of months, and went with him, Miriam and three more of their friends to the Cuba exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Being half-Cuban, I felt a real connection with him, and he was so happy to see the exhibit and the Imax movie on Cuba. It was such a pleasure to meet Amado and share this wonderful experience with him. He will be missed, but left a very deep impression on my heart. I wish I had more time to get to know him better.
