My Dear Father

My dear father,
Today is the last day of your life on this earth.
I know I should be so sad.
I should be crying!
But it is difficult to be sad
When I know you must be so happy (right now).
I know you are watching your soul
Separate from your earthly body
And float up to the sky
Through the clouds
Into heaven
Where you are being welcomed by Angels.
Angels…showing you the path to purgatory....
Where your soul will be cleansed of all sin
In preparation to your meeting with God….
The Lord will talk you through your Book of Life
And when it is time, the Lord will give you your wings.
You will spend your day praising our precious Lord
Along with all the Angels in heaven.

My dear father,
Do not be afraid…
You are going to love heaven!
You will be reunited with you parents
And everyone you love.
And from heaven,
You can look down on me
Until we meet again.
Your daughter who loves you and will never forget you!

Faustino was one of those people who, when you meet him, connect immediately. It was a privilege for me to take care of him. Thank you to Magaly for giving me that opportunity.

Gracias a Faustinito que me abrió las puertas de su casa cuando más lo necesitaba, y por casi 2 años vivimos como una familia, siempre me dijo te quiero como una hermana bebé, la pasamos muy bien y siempre se comportó con respeto hacia mí, siempre lo vi como un abuelo preocupado.
Agradecida por todo te recordaré por el bien que me hiciste, gracias Faustino I am sure that Jehovah saw your heart, and gives us the opportunity to see ourselves again in the new world promised by him.
Gracias cómo mucho cariño Jamirka Pichardo.

Dearest Father, My memories of you in my earlier years are poignant even though as a little boy I yearned for more. You had me sitting on the armrest of the car on our way to the park on Saturdays. I remember the drives back home which were much faster than the drive to get there. I remember that at 8 years old I had my first sip of beer with you. I told you that it tasted like deodorant. I hated it and never drank it again. Good lesson learned early and I knew later why you decided to teach that one to me when you did. You never scolded me or punished me or any of us as I can remember, but you left all that to mom. When I told her of Maggie's call to me of your passing, well you already know how upset she was and is. I was sad to see her sad, but I was so happy to know and see she still cared for you like the very first day you both fell in love. As you and I both grew older, we became closer and much better friends. You acted like you were the younger one. I liked it. The last few years of our time together were as best as I can remember. Thank you for being the father I needed in the end. I appreciate your talks about mom, my sisters and how much you loved them, their husbands, and every single one of your grandchildren. Finally, your advice to me about women is so true, but I will keep that between us. I know Gardenia was up there waiting for you with watermelon icies, asking what took you so long. May God bless you, her and all of us.

Roberto... I didnt have to call him bay any other name. He was one of the primary people in my youth growing up. Alongside Abuela Gardenia, He became part of the reason I am who I am today, with his sense of humor, charisma, and workmanship. He was strong and gentle at the same time and gave the world to my Abuela till her last breath. May he rest in peace.
