Another Father's Day Without You....


You left us on december 26th. 1999. You didn't have the chance to experience the internet, cell phones, web cams, and You missed the "New Millenium". But what You missed most was my kids. Everyday I think of You, your smile, your laugh, your 'big words', but what I miss most is your stories about your birthplace, "The Land of God", you called it.

I didn't know about that terrible day when You found your dear father hurt by his own hands until after You were gone, that day I cried so much, I cried several days for You, for the pain you had to endure, I cried for that young boy who experienced one of the most traumatic events in life. You were still in pain for the lost of your beloved Mother when You lost your Father.

You took care of your brothers and sisters, You never saw them like so. For You, they were your kids. I just learned that You made a promise to your dear Mother, You did good Daddy, You took care of all them.


Rest Daddy, rest knowing My Boricua is taking care of me, just the way You asked Him when I left all You to follow Him. He is a great Dad, just like You.

Thank you Daddy.... Te extraño.... I miss You....

Oh Cotty...such a moving post. I am glad for the way you still feel your daddy's voice and ways in the way YOU now live each day...like a shadow left behind here on this earth. Loved your story. Thanks for sharing such a sweet and sacred memory...
Hugs to you today.

Thanks Julie, it was some sort of therapy let it out of my heart. He had a great personality, his presence filled any room he went in. He was blessed with lots lots of love from his family and friends. He truly is hard to forget.

Hugs!! ;-]
