Papa Juan
« on: April 15, 2011, 11:10:58 AM »
I formerly request the the permanent retirement of REA #119 In honor of Brother Cabo  Cruz AKA   Papa Juan whom can not be replaced. I do not wish to see his Number recycled. It is his. "WOWZAA BABY! " Rest In Peace Br. Cabo.
Thanks, 500KsGerry

Take a copy of the image, size it how  you  like then print on sticker paper.
Maybe someone can have some printed for benefits to the family. If you want to  do  that  please be my guest.    Gerry

I don't know if there is enough of us for a consensus to retire Cabo's number  or what but I don't know what else to  do. I'm just gonna  miss  him. Would be hard pressed to feel friendly towards whoever unwittingly  got  the #  Just have to wait and see I  guess.

Gerry, I think the  consensus is there. Many of us miss Juan

As far as REA numbers being officially retired., It would be helpful to have some input from our Editor - In- Chief.
 
I haven't seen any post from Quin in a few months, hope he is doing fine.

I agree.  Papa Juan's REA number should be retired.  Papa Juan can never be replaced.  Retire REA #119.
