I still feel like none of this is real. I still feel like youโ€™re going to call and tell me this was one of your fucked up jokes that you loved to play. But the truth is, none of that is going to happen. The truth is, that I have to live this unfortunate reality everyday for the rest of my life. I love you with every inch of my existence. Iโ€™m thankful for your love, guidance, and beautiful memories thatโ€™ll also be with me for the rest of my life. Iโ€™m blessed to know that I made you proud of the man I became. Not only would you tell me every chance you got, but also everyone you spoke to. Thatโ€™s all they would say. How incredibly proud you were of me. You were the smartest, funniest, most brutally honest person I know. You pulled no punches. You said it like it is. Which is something very rare to find In this world. I promise to carry on your legacy and continue to make you the proudest dad EVER. I will continue to take my life and career to heights I never knew possible. I will always carry your name with the upmost pride and respect. Dad, you are and will always be my hero. Despite being blind, no one saw the world as clear as you. All I ask is to please continue guiding me and giving me strength. I survived these past 2 weeks because of you. Because I felt you by my side every step of the way. But thereโ€™s still a long road ahead and I NEED you. Nana needs you. Continue shining your light on us Pa. For that light is whatโ€™s going to guide us thru the rest of our lives. I love you. I cherish you. I promise you. I will ALWAYS make you PROUD. Sleep in eternal peace, Papi.
