I miss you So Much Daddy!! I was remembering my wedding day. Do you remember when I traveled alone from Monterrey Mexico to Houston because I wanted to spend a few special days alone with you before my wedding because I felt it would probably be the last time we could do it as Father and Daughter? It was such a special time. So how Blessedly special it was that God willed it so that you would spend your last days on this earth with me, Daddy, under my care, and again got a chance to spend such loving and special moments together. I love you and miss you SO MUCH!! God Bless you and keep you in His Glory.

Some of us are not very articulate Daddy. But I know your family was precious to you. You were so DEVOTED to your family and you were a SUPERIOR provider. You sacrificed for us. Everything you did for my family and I shall NEVER go unappreciated. Your journey on this earth has come to an end, but your legacy will endure forever in our hearts. Love you Daddy. Rest in Peace

How you loved to have fun Daddy. And you were such a Jokester!! You were so good at telling jokes that you had us all in tears. I missed that. A few years ago, I accompanied you to a doctor's visit with Robert. Something happened on the way out of the office that made us crack up laughing. And you said, "that's what I love... you see us all laugh like this". Oh Daddy, how I wish you had had more of that these past few years! Love you.
