Lisa,

John the pitcher is my brother, and my dad is John, son of Juan, my grandfather. I knew quite well Danny,and Willie, and met your Dad on more than one occasion. The three bore a striking resemblance to each other, and also to my father. My father had a different mother, Irene was not his mother. Juan lived with my dad off and on for a few years, I remember him well, and I also knew Irene. My dad's mother was a maid to Juan and Irene, she lived with them. They brought her over from Puerto Rico to help with the boys and the result was Juan and Lola, my grandmother, had an affair which resulted in my dad. My father lives in Florida, was born on May 16, 1932. I am an attorney living in Pennsylvania, I am 59 years old and my brother John was born November 6, 1953. I have another brother Mike, and a sister, Lola. My dad has another half-brother, Angelo Serrano, who died on my dad's birthday last year. His daughter is also an attorney. I have so many stories to tell. I remember Danny as being tall, Willie as mischievious. Willie and your dad looked most like my dad. The resemblance was startling. Willie had a girl and a boy named Randy and Theresa. He was married to a Dottie, and lived in Jersey City, NJ. I have very strong memories of my grandfather Juan, quite the ladies man. I visited him and wife number 4 or 5 when he lived in Puerto Rico.
you and I are first cousins. I hope you read this because we should talk.

Maria Candelaria
