I knew Audeliz Hernandez-Pena in 1962 and 1963 when we were at St. Michael's in Hopewell, New Jersey. He was a young teen when I knew him, handsome and full of life. What I remember most about Audeliz is his wavy, jet black hair, his warm smile, and his playful personality.
St. Michael's was a Catholic orphanage and school. I was there a couple of years, but Audeliz had lived there from the time he was a young boy. Almost all his life spent within an orphanage with nuns, and yet he never complained. He always smiled; he was always positive. Within just a couple years of leaving St. Michael's, while serving his country as an Army private, he was killed in combat in South Vietnam.
Audeliz was a vibrant soul who deserved a long, full life, more than 20 years. I'm glad I can leave a Memorial for my friend so others will know that he left an impression.
Rest in peace, Audeliz.
