My most heartfelt and prayerful condolences to Deb, India and all your family on the passing of Hector. While I didn't know Hector terribly well -- spending time with him (and Deb and India) only at business conferences over the past many years, he was always very kind and welcoming to me. . . I truly enjoyed his company and his playful personality. He is the type of person I would have been proud to call "friend." With much love and prayers. . . Jim Ruegg
