Losing our father is one of the most difficult things we have gone through. We realize how fortunate we were to have him as our father. There are no words to express his influence into our lives. It is through his example that we are what we are today, united.
Our father was hardworking, strong, and intelligent. His love for his family was powerful and lifelike. He would reminisce telling stories about his youth and we would always learn something new about him and his wild adventures. Looking back on those occasional days, after he had a few beers, we would come up to him and ask for a dollar. Of course, we’d walk away with a big grin and a dollar in hand.
Our father was a clever man and was never afraid to make mistakes. He taught us to never be afraid and to give anything a go. He expressed his love through his actions and would come home with an abundance of groceries and would over fill our table to the floor. We, as children, would scurry through the bags to find our favorite fruit pie. Mine was the chocolate pudding pie.
When we were younger, we grew almost all our fruits and herbs. You name it he grew it. We have many fond memories of our father and perhaps one of them is sharing the love of music. You could have come over one day and all the windows and doors would be open with the music flowing like the wind in our precious home.
Our father has been very proud of his children and the way we have grown. We would all get together every weekend with two great big restaurant style pots of his staple menudo with him sitting pleasantly in his oversized recliner. His grandchildren would fill the great big house with laughter and run in and out from the yard. He always enjoyed a full house.
He showed strength and love to us all, right up until his last honorable days. We'll always remember you Dad. Because to replace the love we will always have for you is impossible and it is beyond price to allow another to branch themselves into our hearts just a
