It sure isn't the same however I suppose that is how it evolves. You enjoy the here and now and hold on dearly to all of your memories. I was going to get Maria a box of chocolate pop tarts, thought it might be funny however decided against it, that was your special thing.

"Dad. You came to me in a dream today. You were smiling at me. You didn't speek. It startled me cause you seemed to be so real. You seemed happy not upset. I hope you understand why we are selling the house you left for us. I think that is why you came to me. To let me know it's okay. I hope you know how we have tried to keep things going but it just didn't work out. I thank you for all you have done and still do. I know you are still looking out for us snd that makes me happy. I know what you told me about the house and we all decided to sell it. I know you worked hard all your life to give us a good childhood and most of it was good. I just can't worry anymore it's starting to affect my health. I wish i could of told you how much you ment to me as my dad. Our last words were the best. You said you loved me and i told you i love you too. And than you were gone. You didn't say that to often to me and i didn't say it enough to you. But just know i have always loved you and am proud to be your daughter. I will always be greatful for you doing all the things you did. Even if i didn't agree. I understand why and i will always love you. Feel free to visit me in my dreams i look forward to it. I love you dad."

"Happy Birthday Dad. Today I would of called you at lunch and teased you about another birthday like you do me every year and then we would of talked about the debates and that damn Clinton, the whole crooked bunch... Lol can hear you now! And Trump, what a joke you would of said. Now Bernie, you would be pulling for him
. You always see tthe good in everything including people. Miss those talks. Miss getting those cutie oranges for you every time I came by. Today I raise a glass to the first man I ever loved, you are always in my heart and what they say about daughters comparing men to thier dads is right! No body can ever fill your shoes. I love you, I miss you, and I carry you with me always. Give Mom and Michael a hug for me, you are not alone anymore. Your brothers, sisters, mom and dad are with you celebrating your birthday today. You can visit now like you used to:
Happy Birthday Dad, butterfly kisses...I love you"

I thought of you today but that is nothing new, I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, All i have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart. Love you Dad.❤"

"Wow Dad as you know life is full of many journeys. Of course the best path would have been the one you laid out for me, however I chose to do things my own way. It has been an exciting journey with some ups and downs along the way which I guess is expected. The main thing that always stuck with me is the work ethic and respect and general caring for loved ones and people in general. That alone has taken me along way and I believe will continue to do so. I sure miss our short but sweet and informative conversations. As I continue through my journey I will do my best to make you proud and be the best person I can be. I love and miss you very much every day."

I miss talking to you about my job and career path but I know you'd be happy  seeing where I'm working now. I miss you everyday and will never forget the lessons you taught me and the wisdom and knowledge I've gained from spending time with you. I could go on forever about how much you've given me and now I will carry your name with me forever like we talked about.  Repoza en pace. Te amo mi nono thank you for helping me become the man I am today."
