Un fuerte abrazo.

Dad,
You married my Mom when I was approximately 1 year old. It was natural for me to call you Dad as I did as a baby. Until I was older, I figured I had another father. I remember very early you treated me like I was your own. I never understood the dynamics until I was about 5 years old. You were highly educated from military school, Washington & Lee University and you obtained your Master's degree from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I had a found interest in rocks & minerals, Native American artifacts, and Civil War artifacts. I loved the outdoors, and you were an award-winning photographer. You took us all over the world. You encouraged me to explore and collect rock and artifacts. I loved King Arthur and Stonehedge, and you took me there to England. I collected artifacts and rocks from all over the world. You always encouraged my inherent curiosity for the world. You were a Southern Gentleman although we were not biologically related. You taught me it does not matter as I father Sebastian as my own Son as you did to me. You were a saint, and Uncle Mike loved you as well! You treated him with respect and dignity when many did not. I knew you figured out my life, and where I really was. You were very intelligent, and you figured it out. Thank you for the military school in Virginia. Army ROTC PT in Miami at 4:30 am and the other military part. Thank you for helping me with your Virginia connections and being a gentleman about it. You never said a word, and you went along with it. I always appreciated that, and I should have listened to you. Our last conversation was filled with wisdom and insight, and I will listen this time. It was an honor to have you as a Dad and to be your Son. Thank you for holding on for so long for my Mom. I know you loved her unconditionally, and you both were happy in the last years together. You did it out of true love for Mom, and I always respected you for loving my Mom who I love so much as well! Rest in Peace.
