Remembering Dad-
Not just because its Father's day, but everyday! What I remember most is that he was always there supporting our Family and providing a pillar of strength. My Father gave two most precious gifts, for my whole life.
One was love with sacrifice, the second was Education and Spirituality.
Thank you Dad for everything! Love you, Jacqueline. _( for more about Jacinto, click on "stories" and " His life " above) .
