Big send-off

We had known that Antonio Aguilar hadn't been well. We were surprised to see that the NYT published an extensive obituary, although it named only U.S. movies in which he appeared. We've seen a lot of his movies and can remember an extensive homage on Univision that included live performances by him accompanied in turn by a conjunto, a mariachi group, and a banda. I hadn't realized that one of my favorite songs, No mas un puno de tierra, (letra / lyrics) is identified with him. Everybody has recorded it and at any live performance by anybody someone is sure to request it.
