I was 15 yrs old when tragedy struck. It was 3 am when i answered a phone call from my grandmother who was in tears, i kept on asking what was wrong, and the only answer i heard " He's gone mijo", i didn't know what to do, all i knew was the feeling of the void right there in then. I'am 39 yrs old now, i have a family of four, and man do they remind me of you sooooo much, I am truly blessed with an awesome father/hero, thank you for everything you did for me and the short time we had together.
