those who have passed on to the other world, I salute you. The poets like Ricardo
Sánchez and José Antonio Burciaga. Roz Padilla, the wife of Stan Padilla, who
taught me how to make fine jewelry. The late Mayor of Sacramento, Joe Serna,
and his wife Isabel Hernndez, who were my professors in college. My mother,
who gave me the vision early in my life to see as an artist.
