Dad, 2 years ago almost to the hour, you were taken from us way too early.
We miss you tremendously, but you continue to live on within us and our children and
remain in our hearts.
I found this poem and wanted to dedicate it to you:
God looked around His garden and He found an empty place.
He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you, And lifted your to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew
That you were suffering, he knew you were in pain. He knew that
You would never Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered “Peace be Thine”
It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone. For part of
Us went with you the day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot
See you, You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken, And nothing is the same, But as God calls
Us one by one, our Chain will link again.
We love and remember you always, Your “Martita”
