It’s been over a month and the pain is as fierce as the moment Uncle Gabriel left us. I wish I could stop asking why and grieve for him properly as he rests in paradise. “Amélia” keeps assuring me that “he is loved and is in our hearts”, but I’ve been selfish and just want him here with us. (As a beloved husband, loving son and the rock of our family- making sure things are okay and we’re all safe and happy.) A few things we can all learn from him is to love life and our families as hard as possible and above all... to keep laughing and living as if today is our last. I love you, my Uncle Gabriel, your memory is forever etched in my soul... fly to the moon and play with the stars. XO
