My Dearest Brother, it is one year ago today, April 25,2013, since you left this earth. There are still days when I want to pick up the phone and talk to you, just to hear your voice. I know that you are with me, although I cannot see you or hear you, I know you're nearby and will always be in my heart. Rest in peace my Brother. Love you.

Happy Fathers Day's been awhile since we lost you. We're all adjusting in our own way. The thought of not having you around anymore is unreal at times. We all miss you very much. We understand that life goes on and you want us to live our lives and not be sad. Well, we're trying. This is our first Fathers Day without you Dad, it's just not the same. I miss you and miss laughing with you. Rest in peace Dad. Happy Fathers Day.
Love always....

Thank you for everything you taught me. Thank you for all those beautiful memories... I wish we could've made more. Forgive me if I wasn't there enough. I've ALWAYS loved you and Granma... and I always will. You were so smart, so funny, so wise, and so STRONG. You passed that strength on to me (and I'm sure everyone else) those days you were in the hospital. How can a man not shed a tear after seeing all of his loved ones, after saying good-bye to everyone he cares about? I don't know, but that's exactly why you are so special. You had so much strength. You were such a blessing, and I am so lucky to have had you in my life. You and Granma mean the world to me, and I will never forget either of you. I love you. Rest now, and enjoy the paradise you're in. <3

Dad, when I saw you during your last days in the hospital, my heart ached with every beat, my tears stung as they rolled down my face, but yesterday when I saw you for the last time, my heart beat with honor and my tears rolled down my face with proudness. Dad, you always told me and showed me how proud you were of me and I always told you thank you and I loved you for that. You would just smile and wink. You always gave your kids what we wanted, and in the end, we gave you what you wanted. You went out as you lived, HONORABLY and RESPECTED. I love you Dad. I am and always will be HONORED to be your daughter!
