Say a prayer for my friend and classmate Pablo, whose wife Julieta died on Wednesday. They have two kids, age 6 and 3.

Carrie, who sent out the email to everyone, wrote:

"Julie suffered from an aggressive brain tumor which she fought for the last 18 months with surgeries, chemo and experimental treatments. She was brave and beautiful and strong. And she was so sharp - she actually decided to go for her MBA after Pablo graduated and had already started classes in fall of ‘06 when she was diagnosed."

You can read the newspaper obituary here.

When words fail, I turn to music. Click here and here to download or listen to two songs by Alejandro Escovedo, whose family came to the US from Mexico (like Pablo and Julie).

We'll be at the funeral Monday. Please keep Pablo, Paula and Mateo in your thoughts.
