Thinking of You on Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day Pop,

We have missed you…thoughts of you come flooding back each time an official holiday or your birthday comes around, and here I am again writing to you on Father’s Day. I cannot believe that you have been gone 22 years. Mami is doing, okay. She continues to cope everyday without you and at times it can be a struggle.

Our lives were left with a never-ending void. Let’s face it you always had that presence about you. I have been doing a lot of reflecting  about past times, where you said a word or did something and it would always bring a smile upon my face.

The other day, our granddaughter did not want to share her dessert with her grandfather. I told her about my story and the lesson I learned all those years ago. Do you remember that? I was ten. I was eating a banana, and you asked me for a bite and I refused. I remember it like it was yesterday. For one week, and by the way,  an eternity for a little kid.  I would ask to share your dessert and you would on purpose not share. I never forgot this lesson!

Isn’t it funny, what we remember?

Love your daughter,

Caridad
