Martin... my precious papi

by rose raia
(east petersburg pa)

My dad (I call him Papi) was in my eyes the perfect papi, I don't remember anything bad about him.. He was my go to person... If I was sad, If I needed to see someone, it would be him, because he was always in a good mood. Just being around him was my happy place.
I know he loved me the same.....
His daily phone calls....
Telling me the news....
Asking about my day... and really caring..
telling me he loved me everyday...
his "hello, hello" everything he called...

Now you are in heaven.... and I miss you so much... I cant see your picture without my heart breaking...
Everyone says :he was 83 he had a good life... but I wasn't ready to be without my papi...His smile, his calls, he was also my best friend...

feeling LOST, completely lost...tears just flow every minute of every day.. I sit with you at the cememtry to be close to you. I love you PAPI... and miss you so much it hurts..

everyone seems to be moving on.. but I don't want to..

Dear Rose,

I am sorry for the loss of your papi. I lost my father suddenly in January, and I feel the exact same way. His smile, his laugh, his daily phone calls....I can't believe he is no longer part of my life. He was 81, and people tell me that it was great that he lived so long, but to me, he was taken too soon. I hope you visit this website often. We all understand your pain. I hope you find peace, Barb
