Tuesday, January 12, 2016: Hi Sam. How are you Beautiful? I am in the airport on my way back home from Seattle. Good trip. Looking forward to getting home. Lourdes emailed me earlier today. She tells me she has in her hands a copy of the answer Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) wrote in defense of our latest petition we served her with back on October. It doesn’t matter what she really has to say since we had her served wrong. Lourdes said it was interesting none the less without going into detail. We will get into that on Friday. Stay tuned.

On a sad note, news broke that a young man named Andrew Smith died of cancer today. I did not know Andrew personally. Andrew was a big time college basketball player at Butler University. Who the hell is Butler University? It’s a small school in Indiana that almost shocked the world in the NCAA Basketball Tournament a few years ago by almost beating the perennial championship contender, Duke University. In fact Duke won the championship last year and their coach runs the United States men’s Olympic team. I digress. This Butler team was so good, the coach of that team currently coaches the Boston Celtics. And is doing a great job there too. So while I don’t know Andrew personally, I know college basketball. This kid was legit. And a nice guy too, which makes the news that much more difficult to swallow.

A little context here. Andrew was one of the biggest reasons Butler almost won a national championship. It’s sad because initially he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma which is not supposed to be that bad. With Andrew, it morphed into Leukemia, which is the worst possible kind of cancer you can get. It’s sad because Andrew was only 25 years old when he passed earlier today. 25-years old Sam. I was in the airport in Seattle waiting for my flight when I heard the news. 25-year old’s should not be dying like that. Life is so short as it is. Andrew is 20 years younger than me. At 25-years old, it would be another 2 years before I moved to California. Another 10-years before I met Adriana. And 11-years before I became your Dad. Kinda puts it into perspective, no?

After surviving the La Mesa Prison situation Adriana put me through in 2010, I used to think similar thoughts. What if something happens to me before all this is resolved? What if my beautiful Samantha only knows what she tells you about me? Who would be here to tell you the truth about me and what REALLY happened to you? Don’t worry, I have that figured out. This website is just a small part of that. In the meantime, Besos Hermosa!
