Father's Day

It's been two years. It only seems like yesterday when I wished him a Happy Father's Day and he answered:
"you called me so it already is a happier day"
That was Papi, happy with the simple things in life. I learned much from Papi, that money was not happiness, that you need a strong work ethic, and through his mistakes, that work should never come before your family. Yet at the same time, you have to make your time count.

I still struggle with Papi's absence, time passes but it takes a lot longer for you to heal. After all there is a void that just simply cannot be filled.

So today as I look up to the heavens to wish Papi a Happy Father's Day, for all you fathers out there, and all of you with your father still with us - please please enjoy this Father's Day. And remember Father's Day is just as important as Mother's Day.
