  10. Rene Torres Says:

    Rauli (as we called him) was a university peer, a fraternity brother (Phi Sigma Alpha) and a good friend. We used to go out and serenade girls on weekends (he played guitar and sang, I played the accordion). At the time he truly wanted to go to Hollywood and become a serious actor. I was on a weekly soap opera in Puerto Rico (Hogar Dulce Hogar), but never really wanted it as a career. In 1991 I moved to the LA area and always wanted to reconnect with him, But I kept putting it off for no good reason. I was shocked to learn of his death. I never did get to see him again. I will always miss his sense of humor and camaraderie. Rest in Peace, my friend.
