I met Salah Benyoub 35 yrs ago in El Paso Tx, I always wondered what happened to him. He was in El Paso on a visa from Algeria, I met him at Natural Gas Co. I'm sad to know that he went through chemo. If you ever hear from him, please let him know that Barbara Utterback would love to say hello. He can find me on facebook. Thanks
