Just thinking about you and missing you like crazy dad! I feel as if I am the only one that ever goes here or on your fb memorial and leaves you messages and yes even I have been slacking on it too! I know you know I haven’t forgotten you dad and I know that you know I have been going through a lot lately and that it’s been stressful as hell but I also know that you have been right next to me the entire time dad. I love you and miss you like crazy..... I hope heaven is as beautiful as we always pictured dad.... until we see each other again. ❤️T

Dad,
It's been one year ago today since you took that very last breath and left this crazy place behind. Since then you have had a great grandson, and another granddaughter...that you would have loved just as much as.everyone else. Times sure haven't been easy without seeing your face or hearing your voice on a daily basis dad. We have a memorial planned for you next Sarurday and I'm hoping a lot of our family and.friends make it out to remember you....because I know I haven't and never will forget you....Dad I love and Miss you so much that some dates it's really hard to function, but I know.you wouldn't want any of.us to do that so yes, I get up and go on and do what's needed and expected of me.I love you and miss you dad and I know I was one of the proudest people on earth that had the privilege of calling you Dad! You were a piece of my everything. Love always and forever,

Dad,
As the days come and go, and the night's pass...your always on my mind and that's a fact! When mom and I went to see your brothers, nieces and nephews it was so hard especially when I seen Uncle Rick....if his hair was dark like yours and he had your pretty blue eyes he would have looked just like you dad......that was hard...but I know you seen me be strong and not cry...however my heart kept breaking. I know you are up in heaven watching over all of us...keeping us all safe. It's still hard dad to cook the meals I knew you loved and enjoyed, but I do it and remember the times you would come in the kitchen and tell me how you wanted your meat, or to tell me it smelled good. Dad as the days pass it hasn't gotten any easier, I cannot grasp why ppl say it will because it hasn't yet! Dad, I know you seen me crying the night before your birthday when I was looking at pictures of you and playing songs that reminded me of you. I try not to cry in front of anyone, but it's hard to hold in the tears sometimes.....but I do it because I know you wouldn't want us crying for you because you're in a better place without the pain and suffering. Dad, I know you know who is the right person for me....I just wish you would show me, send me a sign.....Dad, should I go to the dr and get checked out again? Or will it be a mistake? Just please send me some signs....I know you always had my back and I known you still do dad! No matter where my life's journeys take me dad....you will always be in my heart. Your first Fathers Day and birthday in HEAVEN were hard on me dad....not having you here with me to hug and seen your face light up as you opened your gifts from the kids and I. I know your in a better place ......I just wish you could come visit from time to time! :-( love you forever and always dad....your oldest daughter, Tiff aka T

Dad you will always be my hero I'll always love you! Bitter sweet memories dad that I'll always have of you and with you! Life really sucks without you here with us....I talked to your brother Ricky on his birthday and we were reminiscing about you and some days we all start talking about you and missing you like crazy dad! It's almost been 8 months since you were called home and I still see you laying in that Damn hospital bed with the machines hooked up....still hard to swallow at times that you really are gone, but I know your still here maybe not in person but definitely in my heart. I hope you hear Lily at night when she prays to you and God. When it rains like it did today she says "the angels in Heaven are crying,because they miss us" it's too cute dad...you really imprinted on Lily in your short time with her. I love you dad....I'll be back to keep your memory alive!

Sure miss ya Eddie. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have the love for the classic country artist that I have. You showed me the true meaning of real music and often was the father I never had. You taught me how to run a backhoe and demolish whatever stood in my way. You were a great person and are truly missed by your granddaughters, myself and anyone who knew you. See ya again big dawg. Rest easy

Moms birthday

Shared by Tiffanie Martinez on May 26, 2018

Dad today is mom's  60th birthday and I wish you were here to spend it with us.....but remembering mom's birthdays from the past when you were here brought me to one birthday where you left the house with the kids and mom kinda got angry because you weren't really feeling good and you didn't let us know where you and the kids were going.....but yall got back and yall went to the room and came back out shortly after with some cards and gifts from the kids to give mom. Mom opened the cards and gifts from the kids then opened your card up and read it and started laughing because the card read something along the lines of  " Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you baby," and on the inside it said "Who's your daddy?? Happy birthday!" It was the funniest card ever dad. Anyways dad I love you and I know you are here with us today and everyday in spirit.....we all love you and miss you stop by and see mom today. Love ya always and forever!

When I had Ruben

Shared by Tiffanie Martinez on May 20, 2016

The day I had Ruben you brought mom, Leena and Zac up to see Ruben and I after you got off work......in came Leena and Zac full of smiles on both of their chubby lil faces, then in come mom, and then you. Ruben was laying on the bed right next to me and you just kept starring and I asked you what was wrong, and you said "well where is the Damn baby?" I said he is right here next to me dad! You looked and said "that, that's not a baby, that's a Damn baby buddah!" I laughed hell we all laughed and I started hurting so bad from the staples...that I told you too quit making me laugh.........of course that didn't happen but I wouldn't trade it for the world! Now our baby buddah, isn't a Buddha baby anymore....he's a ripped lil 14 year old that you would be so proud of dad!
