La Cadena Quebrada

No sabíamos esa mañana que
Dios iba llamar tu nombre.
En la vida te quisimos mucho
En la muérete hacemos igual.
Nuestros corazones se rompieron al perderte.
No te fuiste solo,
porque una parte de nosotros se fue contigo
el día que Dios te llamo al cielo.
Nos dejaste con recuerdos de paz.
Tu amor es todavía nuestro guía,
aunque no te podemos ver,
siempre estás a nuestro lado.

Nuestra cadena familiar está quebrada,
y nada se parece lo mismo,
pero Dios nos llama uno por uno,
y nuestra cadena
se ligará otra vez.

Hola primo,
I always find myself missing you when i’m alone. I sometimes I look through your instagram and think, “wow, where’d you go?” I hope you can forgive me for not always visiting you at the cemetery or stopping by your tree. It’s kinda funny, you got a whole tree to yourself, lucky you… Today you would've been 26, and i’m so glad I got to be apart of your life for 24 of those years. I hope that wherever you went, you’re doing great things like always. We all miss you, so very much. Until we meet again. ❤️

I've always found comfort in writing and poetry, and it's been hard to write anything since David passed, but I found a poem that brings me comfort and I wanted to share with everyone, in honor of David.

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
by David Romano

If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise you find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you
And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.
He said my place was ready, in heaven far above
And that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
But as I turned and walked away a tear fell from my eye.
For all my life I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do.
It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays the good ones and the bad.
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,
I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized that this could never be,
For emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
When I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow
I thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow.
When I walked through heavens gates I felt so much at home.
God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throne
He said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you”
Today your life on earth has passed but here life starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last
And since each day is the same there’s no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful so trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.
You have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.
So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts with out me don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.

My cousin David had energy that could light up a whole room, and make everyone feel so loved and welcomed. There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t think of him, and miss my cousin. I’m so lucky to be able to call him my cousin. I love him, I miss him, and I wanted to make this tribute page in memory of David, for us to always have to look back on, and always have him remembered. I love you David. We miss you so much.

Secret Santa

Shared by Bianca Castillo on July 9, 2021
I remember there was a time that David and a few of my other cousins would hang out to play cards against humanity together. We'd all meet up in David's kitchen, laughing at our dumb jokes. We decided to do a secret santa with each other and David got me. He gave me a potty putter haha. It was a joke gift that made me laugh so hard. I think that's when David taught me the best gift you can give your loved ones is a happy memory. I don't have the toy anymore, but the memory is forever in my heart, just like you are, David. I miss you so much and I love you.
