My sweet daddy, was one of the most loving and most stubborn men I knew. He had the biggest heart and was so selfless. He loved his family so much and always bragged on his children and grandchildren. He taught me so many things including; the value of money, the importance of an education, appreciation for my culture, the love of reading(how to read in Spanish) but most important the love of family. I will you miss you so much!!!
