Thank you Jackie for your kind thoughts and words. It;s still hard for me to accept his passing. He was always the strongest man I have known and invincible in my eyes. I used to call him almost everyday and when I missed a day or two he would really let me know it. If only I could pick up the phone and call him again. As I type this my mom has passed too, on Jan 1, 2014. I'm without words to express my profound sadness losing both my parents, not to be with them again and say I love them. I pray they are in a better place and that someday we will be reunited again. I know my mom and dad both cared for you and I hope that we can find solace that they are no longer in pain and they are together again with each other and the family and friends that have passed before them.
