Ironically the departure of my dear husband 6 years ago; November 1st, is the " Death day" for some in our Latin culture honors that sacred cycle by venerating the dead and celebrating their annual return to the world of the living". In life, death is only the beginning. 

While for me is the most devastating day , broken heart, day to cray, and is time to survive to.!! I have to rescued my self; from this loveless world by watching the trees on the prairies to color my life.

Las personas a quienes amamos y se nos van , siempre nos traerán un halo de inmensa tristeza que solo el que la padece , lo sabe.
Tu esposo mi querida Albita , ahora está descansando y bendito Dios por ello.
Solo queda recordarlos como algo muy bello que pasó por nuestras vidas y continuar esta hermosa existencia , que aún con sus bajones sigue siendo hermosa.
Tu esposo te seguirá amando más allá de la eternidad.

Recordando inmensamente al esposo de mi gran amiga Alba, Randal. Tuve el gusto de conocerlo y compartir con él varias veces y siempre me impresionó por el gran amor y cariño que le tenía a su esposa. Se el gran vacío que dejó su partida. Acompañando a Alba en su recuerdo.

Today is the 5th anniversary of my dear Randy's departure to heaven. Since then, I have been pretending joy, and surviving.
Time doesn't heal, and there is not magic words to change the sad memories of this tragic day, for only to remember the wonderful moments of joy of our time together. Traveling by exotic and romantic places around the world, though he was quiet and passive, he was charismatic, and every body ended loving him, he was genuine good sense of humor, and always ready for the adventure. 

Though is hard for me to say good bye, so I could heal the sad perspective of his departure, while the time goes by to be infinite in my heart, there is no one day goes by that I don't think and miss him. My heart longs for him, especially at this time of the year.

Happy Belated Birthday in Heavens dear!! 

Though I have you always in my mind and heart, still is sad and hard for me to letting you go. No matter how hard I have tried. Especially for your birthday celebration when you were here. Now, before July 11, I started to be nostalgic reason why I did not came to post anything until today. 

I found a beautiful song titled " Dance me to the end of love" By Leonard Cohen .. I though about you and me! It sounds like it was our song, but me without you today. It makes me feel grateful for what we live and enjoy together, and it will be to the eternity.

In the memory of my loving husband. Today 1st of November 4 years ago
and for our latin culture always we are celebrating the day of the Saints!!

Rescuing the meaning of this sad day for me from the vapid gourds and false cobwebs, I propose a toast for those who are no longer with us. Especially for my dear Randy. For the friend and love that went so far in the afternoon...

He is stardust but he keep his heart in our hearts. also, to each and every one of them, a warm memory and three words: thank you, sorry, I love you.

For those who stopped seeing our eyes and we theirs, for those whose heart failed them and stopped writing notes in the score of our lives. For those who promised to be happy and died struggling to get it, for those who did not and for those who died with a smile on their face after years, and thousands of memories lived.
Let us truly remember them, the saints of our lives.
Happy day of all the Saints!

Sadly his website was not working for me in the 2nd anniversary of his passes to post or leave my tribute!, however, all our friends and relatives posted in his Facebook website, supporting and encouraging me to keep going on, because his is watching at me from heaven.

As the song say "I have got you under my skin" When I met my beloved Randy 18 years ago he became alive within me, in my consciousness, memory and emotions like a powerful magnet attracting bits of metal, reasons why, it has being so painful and has taken me 2 years to realize the gap left by him, because part of me died with him 2 years ago.

Although I know is not over and never will, but I will keep myself strong because I know he is with me in spirit, and I will continue praying for him to rest in peace, until the day we'll be together, somewhere somehow when my day arrive, the universe will bring us together again.

Hola Mr Randy en esta vida no tuve el gusto de conocerte ni de compartir contigo pero he podido saber algunas cosas de ti y en especial he sabido lo buena persona y excelente esposo que fuiste haciendo feliz a mi amiga Albita. Dios seguro ha premiado tu alma generosa y amorosa y sin duda que descansas en la paz de nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Que tu amor llene de Esperanza y fe el corazón atribulado de Alba y des consuelo a su tristeza.
Que la luz perpetua del amor divino de Diós brille para ti por siempre.

I've known Randy since the mid 70's. We first worked together at WPEC CH 12 in WPB,Fl. In 1980 we again worked at WTVJ CH 4 in Miami. Randy was always a kind and caring friend.We shared many good times with fellow friends in laughter and joy. I will forever miss his smile and laugh. Rest in Peace my friend.

I knew Randy for as long as I can remember. He was always a very special person and I felt privledged to call him a close friend. His mischief and humor were hidden behind such an innocent seeming demeanor that most people were surprised when they realized he was the one behind a practical joke or prank. The sparkle in his eyes when he could no longer keep a straight face sometimes gave him away. He is missed by all that knew him well.

Today, is the 65th anniversary of my dear Randy birth, his kind and gentle soul had being the inspiration for me to be strong and to survive , his smile looking at me in all those especial memories, will always bring me a smile.
In his birthday as we always celebrate and have a good reason for thanksgiven for the times being together, enjoying life, traveling and working out problems, then yes, we did grow. That is my biggest satisfaction I have today I know he is resting in peace taking care of me from above.
In this second anniversary since he is gone, I have come to realize that all in this life has a beginning and end, therefore, I will live life for him as we planned together, and I will love him even if he is not physical at the present.

Randy has always been more than a cousin to me. There was a month and a day between us and we were always together. Our mothers were best friends and married brothers that farm together most of the time. Randy was like my twin we told each other everything and we would alway talk things over with each other. I can remember when we were little one of us would have measles and they would check the other and sure enough we both had them the same with chicken pox mumps and whopping cough. But we were alway glad because we always had our playmate. When I got married Bobby and Randy were alway close to. When Randy died it felt like he took a part of me with him but I will always keep a part of Randy in my heart for as long as I live.

When feeling your loss, and I know it will be constant, then think back on the good times, your travels, all that you were able to share with each other. Randal would want that for you. A good man, they say, is hard to find--and you were fortunate enough to find that man and share many years together. Not enough time, but there never is with a loved one. Alba, replace sadness with good memories as best you can

I met Randal in February of '83, when Wometco gave me the opportunity to shift from being a news producer at their ABC affiliate in Asheville, NC to being a promotions producer at WTVJ. I LOVED the creative demands of the new job, and Randal was infinitely patient as I asked him to show me all the cool flips, zooms and other effects I hadn't been able to use in news pieces. Over and over again, he would bring my story boards to life. He DID joke about charging me a quarter for each effect -- and that would have made him a VERY rich man! Fun, brilliant, SO talented on the switcher, and just an all-round class act. Miss you, buddy!

Randal Adkins, a special man. When you had the privilege to meet him you knew immediately that you have met a kind and gentle soul. I will always remember his warm smile, a good man. Some say that "it is not the years of your life, but the life in your years". Alba and Randal lived a good life together, they both loved to travel and did. I know Alba misses him dearly, but she has a lot of wonderful memories to help ease the pain of losing such a good man, such a good husband and partner.  We have both lost the love of our lives--my solace is in cherishing the memories! Gone too soon, yet cherish the memories Alba.

Love of your life

July 12, 2020
I’m so happy you found the love of your life, Randy, as Alba found hers in you! You deserved that happiness. From the time I knew you (Bernie schools) you were always so kind, smart, loved to laugh. You didn’t do a lot of chit-chatting but I know that mind was rolling - probably like that rolling camera of yours! So successful and yet not one to talk about your accomplishments back home as far as I knew. 
Complete success includes finding your one true love, my opinion only, and you achieved that. ♥️ You are loved and missed by many, especially your Alba

Randy will forever hold a special place in the hearts of those that knew him. His infectious smile and sense of humor lightened the hearts of family and friends. Randy was a very special person that will be remembered by all that were fortunate enough to get to know him.
The BHS class of 71 reunions won't be the same. We were a small group, causing us to be more like family than mere classmates. Our lives were enriched because Randy was part of our lives.
I am sure he is celebrating his birthday in heaven by having his friends help him pull pranks on the other angels.
Yes, Randy will be forever missed.

The day after his 66 birthday in haven

July 12, 2020
I know I feel my love that you are watching me from heaven

I am thankful for the beautiful thoughts to you mi amor from our dear friends, Gustavo Nieto Roa, Darlene Youngs, and Billie Slusher, they  joined me to celebrate your 66 years birthday on this platform.
 
There were also other friends from the University like Edward Amador and the two Lucy and Maricarmen, which they have not figure how to get here. Ha. Our friends from Colombia and others located around the world. Egyptian such as Khaled, Inaz and Olga . They wrote their thoughts on our Facebook profile. I know you are smiling for it.   

Although, it had been 3 years and half hard to leave without you, feels like it was yesterday. 

You must know that on March 22, 2020  your ashes were buried next to you mom and dad.

We did a little life celebration of life with your family and school friends. At the Wharf Restaurant in Dexter,  where it was displayed all your life awards about the 5 olympics you were part of during working for NBC.Your very appreciated award from the covered of the Andrew huracan, all of them they were going to be displayed at your school in Bernie.

 Your Saint Thomas University Diploma and the title of your house which you were never able to see them.  Because when our graduation event happened we were away happily traveling in Europe. Also I distributed your coin collection with your brothers and sister, Sherry. I left only the coins value for the history as it was your favorite topic in life.  Your 18th hundred coins I will donated to a Museum. 

It was really sad and cry to bring your ashes there.  The event was a published on the Dexter news paper.  Thanks to Bille who help me, without her help I would never would be able to accomplished and take you back home. 
  
Now, and after that event, during the coronavirus confined, the support of your friends and mine had being a lot of help and support for me to survive life  without you. Billie, came and stay with me  for two weeks. I was taught a lot of little things that I never knew about you, because you were very reserved person. But that was the charm that conquer my love and me. 

One day after of your birthday I am reading our friends thoughts. Also, writing mine. 

I can not managed to cry! I know you don't like me to cry. You may know I purchased the bury plot for me to be burry next to you when my time arrives. I did it, when I realized you will be alone next to the whole family "Adkins" But now, you will no be alone. Our bury plate have our photo and reads " Lovers to the eternity"

You are the best thing ever happen to me. You were my best friend, my only family, my only world. I am thankful for my current emotional and economic stability.

Thank you for guide me and be with me from heaven.

Love you mi amor forever!
