    “Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us everyday”

I will continue to meet you through the wonderful son you gave me in Romolo. To you, mi Amor, Anna, Linda, Sandra and all your families, my heartfelt condolences & prayers!
    The loss is immeasurable but so is the Love left behind!

    My father had a saying "you will never have anything if you don't get in debt, and if you don't take care of it." Getting in debt is the risk, the chance we take, it doesn't matter if it is a material debt, or emotional / relational debt. It simply means to have something we have to put our whole selves out there, to the unknown, and taking a chance, in hopes of everlasting happiness. Taking care of it is self explanatory.

    My Grandpa was my last living grandparent it makes me very sad that he had to go but Im extremely happy that he is in a better place.He is with out pain and full of Joy.
    I pray that we all gain peace and learn that this life is all we get so let us forgive and love each other with the days we have that the Lord has given us.
    Ephesians 4:32
    And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

    I loved my Dad so much that words can't describe but he would always say it's never too late for what you want... He was a good man, a kind, loving caring man he would give you the shirt off his back... I will always love him and miss him dearly... Rest in peace dad, knowing that you are in peace puts me in my own peace..
