QEPD: Ramón Puig, El Rey de las Guayaberas

See here for Cafe Fuerte's obit of Ramón Puig, "El Rey de las Guayaberas."

I am personally indebted to Señor Puig. I bought a white, long sleeved Irish linen guayabera from him in the summer of 2005 for my wedding that August 13.

I have since realized that despite his own longevity in power, it was a bad omen to get hitched on El Comandante's birthday.

Unfortunately, the guayabera has lasted longer than the marriage.
