Enter a personal reminiscence or story.
My biological father was an absentee dad while I was growing up, but he would make efforts to pick me up for weekend trips to visit and get to know my Vélez side of the family. My father was a laidback, hippy type guy that was all about peace and love. He was known most of his life by two nicknames: Cuchi to his family, and Brother Wine to his close friends.
