My dad taught me to be handy. I loved messing with his tool box n I’d jump at the chance he’d ask for my help. He was truly kind, funny you realize certain things about someone after they’re gone. He had a sense of humor. I remember him coming home tired n he’d go to bed well me and my brothers tried desperately to tickle his underarms but he didn’t budge! Our little fingers penetrating into his armpits n dad wouldn’t laugh. But beware, don’t let him catch you with his toes! They pinch just as hard as they were fingers. Dad I think about you everyday, I miss you terribly!

Abuelo used to come home and have a late dinner and sit me on his lap and share his dinner with me. He taught me how to eat with a fork and we’d always have a celery stick with rice and beans and chicken. I still prefer my celery with my rice and beans. 🙂 I remember how he built his piragua cart from a shopping cart. It was amazing to watch. I’d ask a million questions and he’d just build away saying yes to everything I asked lol. He was amazingly talented with his crafts and I still have a tiny house he made for me where I can store things inside. My kids loved him especially my Lila. The last beautiful memory we have is of him playing the guiro for Lila. I thank God that he not only got to see my kids but was also able to celebrate my wedding with me and my husband and his large beautiful family. You were blessed to have four generations of family in your life and we were all blessed to have you. We love you abuelo.

Pops always gave Rachael, Elias and me Juicy Fruit gum everyday when he got home when we were kids. So much so that a friend of ours once asked us if he worked in the Juicy Fruit gum factory.
It was his way of connecting with us.
Dad always said, "A man without an education is nothing". I think Rodney Dangerfield stole his line and used it in Back to School. He also always told me to wear a hat in the winter.
I have two Master's Degrees and my hat is always on when it's cold outside.
He also always said the word "Cholesterol" in Spanish, whenever we ate something because the doctors always warned him, from the 1970's, that he had high cholesterol.
HE LIVED TO 91!!!!

Bendicion Papi. Te Quiero mucho! My father was a gentle and humble man. He always expressed to leave things in God's Hands, no matter what. He wasn't violent. He left his legacy in each of his children. How precious that what he instilled in us, his children covered him in prayer. Until we see each other again. Bendicion mi Pai! I love you always!
