This was my Grandfather who I never got to meet.
He is a twin imagine of my older Brother in this photo.
I never knew about his family in New Mexico or that his son Vincent my Father was born there.
After this tradgedy his wife my Grandmother Josephine moved her four kids to Florida.
His second son Vincent Jaramillo is my Father.
Antonio was my Grandfather who I never got to meet.
Our family needed him.
I will never understand truly why this had to happen to him so young with four babies at home, but I do know I wouldn't exist if my Grandmother never moved to Florida.
I wish things could have been different and that he lived to raise his children.
They needed him.
I pray to meet him one day in Heaven.
R.I.P to my Grandfather Antonio Jaramillo.
