I miss you.
I miss your strong arms
holding me tight.
I miss the time
We spent together,
No matter how much of a journey
it was.

I could barely stand
your funeral, but
your daughter, my mother
Held my hand.
And then your first grandchild
Folded her arms around me,
holding me close.

But the worse part of all
Was not your long sickness,
not the news of your death,
But the sound of dirt
Thudding on your coffin
Covering you
in the ground,
So that I will never see you
ever again.

I wish I could have felt
your arms cuddling me
that day,
Like the last time I saw you,
and the countless times before that.

But every time I remember that bear hug,
I'll think of you,
And I'll look up into the sky
to see your smiling face,
telling me that you'll never be far away.
I love you

You are the greatest Granpa in the world!!!!!

You are my granpa and forever you will be, I miss you so much, I know this you can see......

Im so confused now things are so strange, But i guess this can happen to anyone, including me.
I talked to grandma just the other day,she seems like shes doing fine,but i can see how she is trying to deal with this,she stands strong even thow i knw its realy tearing her apart inside!!!!

now that your gone i knw that you are doing good,just like i wished you deserved you are in the kingdom now next to our king, so i have no worries!!

You always made us laugh you where such a funny guy,with that smile that i can not or will ever forget!! Now your music stays in our hearts.... I will follow your footsteps now im learning guitar!!!
till the day i see you again,Grandpa may your heart be at ease.I love you so much!!! To me you will be the best Granpa in the whole world!!!

What made my father!!!!!
GOD took the strength of a mountain,The majesty of a tree, The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea, The generous soul of nature, The conforting arm of night,The wisdom of ages,The power of eagles flight,The faith of a mustard seed,The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need, THEN GOD COMBINED THESE QUALITIES,,,,,, WHEN THERE WAS NOTHING MORE TO ADD .HE KNEW HIS MASTERPIECE WAS COMPLETE ,,,,,,,,,,,AND SO HE CALLED HIM CARLOS ALVAREZ BUT TO ME HE IS MY DAD!!!!!! I WILL MISS YOU MY LOVE.
