|My mother's father Pedro Lopez was born in the
town of Aguadilla in Puerto Rico. He later moved to
Santurce, where he met my Abuela. She was born in
Fajardo. Unfortunately there marriage didn't last. My
Abuela later met and married Benjamin Bruno. He
raised my mom as if she where his daughter. My
memories of my Abuela was that she was an excellent
cook! She was a person who never spoke much
about herself but loved her children dearly. Benjamin
Bruno was born in the town of Manati. He was a
Merchant Marine. He traveled all over the world and
would bring back many fascinating souvenirs from his
travels. As a young man he was a pretty good boxer
who compiled an impressive amatuer record. He
turned pro but gave it up when his manager kept
cheating him on his share of the purses! He was a
good man that, I was proud to call my Abuelo.
