My awesome Apa,

I love you with all my heart. It is a very heartbreaking experience to see you no long walk amongst your family and others, however I know you now walk amongst angels and God. Your impact on those you came in contact with was monumental, and Im glad you instilled such great values into my Mother and Father that are now being instilled into me. You will always be a hardworking man, a caring one as well, but above most you were a dispensary of knowledge and a giant walking among men. From looking at old pictures of you, I now know where I get my fashion sense from. You will always be in my heart and the heart of everyone else, and I will be sure to keep your legacy alive. Love you Apa, we will meet again when it is time for the living to go to the Lord. I already know youre rennovating the family mansion, awaiting the arrival of the rest of the familia.

Daddy your services were beautiful. It warms my heart to see how many people love you and how many lives you have impacted. You were truly a great man. You will forever be a Giant in my life. I will miss you immensely daddy but I will continue to carry your legacy as you would want me to. Thanks for being the best father a girl could ever ask for. Thanks for always guiding me, correcting me, protecting me and most of all loving me unconditionally. I will always remember " la palabra es alalva". Until we meet again my precious daddy. God knew exactly what he was doing by taking you home first. He knew how important your family was to you and how seriously you took your roles of husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He knew it would have to be you that would help prepare our mansion. You wouldn't have it any other way daddy. Cya later alligator after while crocodile. #Iwillloveyoualwaysandforever

Daddy as I sit here reminiscing, my stomach quivers and knots up with anxiety and nervousness just thinking of what tomorrow will bring. Tomorrow I will see you for the first time in 6 days. I will see you and speak to you but this time our conversation will only be one sided. I will speak to you without being able to look into your eyes. I will touch you and will yearn for a hug or a kiss from you but sadly it will go unreturned. Daddy what I would do to be able to rewind time. What I would do to have just one more day with you. Daddy you are truly a one of a kind. In the physical you are a short man but in my life you are a Giant. A man who taught me what it truly means to love. A man who taught me that family is the most important thing. A man who taught me about equality and about being cognizant of other people's feelings. Daddy you had no favorite. You didn't play that game. You loved each one of us equally. I truly admire that quality that you possessed and I will miss you dearly.
Daddy down deep inside I know that you are in a much better place and that I will see you again soon, however, the selfish me wants you here by my side. I miss you bunches already and my heart hurts. This is the toughest thing I have ever experienced.
I know I told you this many times daddy but I would like to say it again...."thank you daddy for loving me unconditionally ....for teaching me what family and love is all about.....for sticking with your family and never walking out....for taking your husband & father role seriously.... for protecting me....for teaching me how to be strong and to survive. You left a big legacy daddy and I will continue to cherish everything about you. Life on earth will continue and I will survive because I am from your seed. We fight to the end and never give up. It will be hard to face life without your presence but I will carry you in my heart always. I will not say goodbye daddy. I will just say ...."see you soon"
Save me a seat daddy. Preferably right next to you. Until we meet again "my hero". I love you with all of my heart daddy and I look forward to the day that we meet again.
