Hi daddy,

I’ve never written to you here because I didn’t know it existed but I talk to you all the time. Its almost 21 years so you’ve been gone. Of course all the things you thought would happen for me have happened. Geraldo taught me how to drive. Gilbert met and scared my boyfriend. I graduated college. All the stuff I know you were right there with me when they happened. and now, I’m engaged! Getting married next Year in May! He’s a great guy and his dad is law enforcement as well. You’d love them all! I can’t wait to feel you there on my wedding day and incorporate your memory into our celebration. Geraldo will walk me down the aisle. :) I know you’ll be smiling that big smile of yours.

We have more babies in the family that I know you are aware Of. Frankie is 6 ozzie is 2 and Gracie is 6 months. Of course baby Daniel who would be 4 is up in heaven with you.

I love you daddy. Thank you for always being my side and being there for me when I needed you. I will never forget you and your memory will always live on in my heart.

Your princess
