“Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them,”
Psalm 69:34 NIV
Happy first anniversary dad! I’ve missed you.
Enjoy the serenity, sea breeze, singing birds, tropical weather of your heavenly estate.
Dad and I would sit together for unlimited hours at a time! We talked about anything, laughed at funny jokes, shared updates on ‘novelas’, arranged for auto repairs, shopped for office supplies, ate ‘Arepas’ every morning, dealt with disappointments and grief, watched ‘Sabado Gigante’ traveled to Scandinavian countries…
YES! I was dad’s little girl.
In my teens, dad enjoyed my piano practices at sunrise, and even dreamed of piano performance in concert halls. As I grew older, dad was delighted about college plans and career opportunities.
I vividly remember dad’s tears of joy when I graduated.
If I could whisper in his ear where I’m possibly heading next… He would smile at me right at this moment and would say, “you can do it, Adriana”
Dad never graduated from high school yet lived in two countries, retired in his early 40s, traveled around the world and provided us with life-time opportunities.
Praise God for His faithfulness!
Dad was a remarkable man who also battled Parkinson’s disease for over 35 years, shared his wisdom, loved unconditionally and left fingerprints engraved deep in my soul!
Dad’s integrity, humility and forgiving heart will forever be treasured.
Dad is much alive in my heart!
YES! I’m still dad’s little girl.
