 I was one of the fortunates to have had experienced Moss Beach and Miramar Beach in the 70’s.  I came upon some of your articles while curiously looking to see who was still around.  I was brought to tears by two deaths.  One of George Moore and the other of Richard English.  They were dear to my heart and represents a loss of a very romantic period of my life.  I noticed the article was written by Sam Varela. He owned the Moss Beach Distillery and Torres.  He also was a love in my life.  I was wondering if Sam is still alive.  I do not want to get in touch, just to know he is safe and sound.  Your articles brought back many memories an gave me some good laughs and some tears.
