Papi, I miss you so much everyday and it's strange that it's affecting me harder now than in the beginning. I just want to call you to hear your voice, like I did all the time on my way home from work when you and mami used to argue on who could talk to me first. I still taste your famous Chinese rice, I was so happy you got to cook that for back in June. I wish I could of been there that morning with you I want you to know that. Not knowing anything until that later afternoon Is something that plays in my head all the time. It's been so hard to deal with the fact that I was left with the decision to let you go, and the fact that I cant get the vision of them doing CPR on you or that they broke your ribs while doing CPR. I'm having such a hard time with that, I hope your not upset with me that I wasn't there in time to hear you speak and I need you to let me know you were not in pain during your last few hours because you were always happy and never suffered throughout all of this cancer journey. I just feel like I'm existing now I feel empty purposeless. I hope you can visit me in my dreams and please know I will love you forever.

Mis mas sentido pésame a la Sra Marta, hijos y nietos por la muerte del Sr Eduardo Garriga. Tuve la fortuna de compartir con el varios retiros que organizaba el Padre Demetrio Lorden. Siempre tenía una gran sonrisa, era muy buen conversador, y profesaba su gran amor a Dios. Que sus grandes memorias perduren por siempre. RIP Sr. Eduardo

Uncle Eduardo was a special man, full of love and laughter. Always dedicated to his family, friends and church. It comforts me to think of him reunited with our loved ones in the Kingdom of Heaven. You will truly be missed Tio but not forgotten. Until we meet again.

Love always,

Eddie was such a spunky, generous, caring and beautiful soul. He was always laughing, what an infectious laugh he had too. The world just got a little darker with losing his brilliant light. Sending my prayers and hugs to surround Martha and all of the family.
With all my love,
