I miss you "Papi"

by Saul

One month and four days ago I (we) lost our father to Lung and liver cancer. Towards the very end we brought him home to be with us. I knew that it was only a matter of time (days) before my "Papi" would pass. I even prepared mentally for that moment. During his final hours of life I whispered in his ear "Papi" it's alright if you need to go. Please go and find your peace. We will take care of Mom for you. Please know that you were the best father a son or daughter could ever ask for. My son Diego has the best memories of you and him spending time in the garden, playing dominoes, running from the "huevo grabber" lol !! He thinks the world of you. To him you are now his personal "guardian Angel". I am now finding it harder to grasp the fact that you are not physically not present. I miss you "Papi" there is a big void missing from my being, my soul. Kinda hard to explain. To describe it best I would compare it to craving a favorite food , candy or playing w/that favorite childhood toy...... But not being able to.

You are missed very much. Not a moment passes that we (I ) am not thinking of you. You left some really big shoes to fill. Darn!!!

I love you Papi

You will miss him for the rest of your life. My husband passed away 7 months go. Although I carry him in my heart I seem to miss him more each day. I miss his smile and the "I love you honey." My life will never be the same again. All of us who have lost a loved one have to do the best we can to continue our lives and honor the memory them.
God's blessings to you and your family.
