I am a retired teacher from BMHS. I have always been close to our Custodians. They had a difficult and often thankless job, but their kindness and hard work was appreciated by all of the teachers. I often worked late after school so I had a chance most days to talk to the custodians. i have fond memories of Willi, Don Horacio, Carlos, and Mr. Espinosa. I also remember Michael from class. I am sorry for your loss, and I just want to let you know that Mr. Espinosa was one of my favorites. Cuidense y un fuerte abrazo, Don Hohmann
