This could be many folks in my family, but I'll choose my Gramps. He was the first to introduce me to ice cream (I was less than a month old) and he always boast that we used to sit around and eat EXTREMELY hot salsa and chips together so he also gave me my love for good Mexican food. :)
This photo was taking at his birthday party two years ago. He is my only relative out here in Arizona and even though I hardly see him, I still am glad to have a family member out here.
