As the words repeat over and over again in my head that you Dad (Apa) had passed away, I don't remember if my heart stopped for a moment. I had just seen you two days prior. I brought you albondigas and your favorite Dr Pepper thirstbuster. You smiled at me as you always did. You were so relaxed and content after you ate. You were falling asleep so i told you I loved you, kissed you on the forehead and i rubbed your face and felt the soft stubble and warmth of your face. I will never forget everything you did for me and the boys (Nicholas and Estephan). You taught me so much. You taught me laughter and to respect myself and never settle for less than I deserve. I remember telling you that i was sorry you never got to give me away or dance with me. All you said was it's ok Mija, someday. I know you are in a better place. And you are with all the loved ones you have lost over the years. It's not goodbye Dad, I pray to God I'll see you again. I love you Dad 💕💕

My dad was the sweetest and most generous man. He loved his family and was so proud of all his children. His grandchildren meant the world to him. And was blessed to meet his great grandchildren. He always took pride in his appearance. He liked his hair cut and styled a specific way. He shoe shined his boots and dress shoes. He always carried a white handkerchief in his back pocket and offered it to anyone who needed it. I remember many road trips with my dad and hearing him sing along to the country music that he loved. He enjoyed Clint Eastwood movies, especially Westerns. He had the most beautiful penmanship. I will miss calling him and asking how he is? And his response “Not too shabby for an old fart.” I love you, Dad and miss you so much.
