It's the day after we said our final goodbye, it could not have been a more beautiful day yesterday. I miss you so much, I will be taking a different route to work next year so my heart doesn't break everytime I see your window. I love you daddy. Decanse en paz, tu Daisita que te quiere tanto que me duele en el alma.

It was the sweet smell of his cologne, then I knew he was home.
Every visit meant advice to be heard when I was only ten years old.
He would tell me, “Mijita, hagame un favor. No fume” with a regretful look.
I would smile and say "No Tio" and go on with my book.
The pensive looks on his face would be distracted by my sudden embrace, the shine in his light eyes were grateful.
Thank you for loving and never forgetting me as the world turned so many years later,
Today I say good-bye Tio Modesto.

I was so happy I got to see you one last time. You didn't want to cry, but every time you did, you couldn't help it. I stayed strong, sitting next to you. We had no conversation but I knew that you were there for the entire time. As I was preparing to leave, your gaze was low, but never lost. As I slowly walked and waited for the elevator, you lifted your head, let out a deep breath and gave me a strong blink. No more crying, no more pain, no more. Thank you for ALWAYS letting me in your house, for not getting mad at me when I would tiptoe across your room to get to your "chicas," my sisters, for being the one to buy me ice cream from the ice cream truck, for introducing me to AC trips, for teaching me the difference between a milk shake and vanilla ice cream, for showing me how funny "Three's Company" was, for being the only Mets fan when I thought Yankees were the only NY baseball team, and for loving me like I was one of your own. I love you Tio Modesto; may you now be free from this world, and enjoying Jesus in paradise.

RIP Tio, I’m glad I went to see you before this horrible virus hit, you smiled and cried so I knew you recognized me and then I made you laugh. You suffered enough and knowing that you are now resting is comforting. Sharing memories is always comforting for me at least so One quick story to share he was the first person who told me that I had RBF (rest b$&!? face) not as insult but as a compliment, told me that every time I got on the bus I walked with blinders and never even saw him lol. Apparently everyday after school! Well he told me to continue to be that way and not to talk to strangers, get in the bus and get out. This conversation I’ve never forgotten, I still get told to this day I look mean lol Thank you for your daughters, they are like my sisters, I mean for years I basically lived in your house. You watched me raise Emily while you were like a dad to Leilani. May your sleep in peace ❤️🙏
