Julio "J.J." Apilado, Jr.
Here goes by April, little Marie's, mine, and Tony's Birthday. I miss when you would take us to all of our birthday dinners. How much fun we had! Of course we all miss and love you like crazy. I still have no idea how I get by everyday without you here. I'm trying to hold this family together and my own life. It's the hardest thing I ever had to do. During these hard times I would call you but now I have no one to call. You were my rock and now I have to be my own rock. BIG HUGS DADDY and MALACHI
I love you dad so much! I would give anything to have you here. I would even give my life if I could change it!
Still unbelievable that you are gone and not here to update me on our birthday get-togethers about your kids and grandkids, how they must miss you as I do, you were such an incredibly caring co-worker, friend and confident.
With this Veterans Day I thought of you brother. Taken too soon.
Daddy please take care of grandma as she begins her journey with you today. Show her around and take her to cool places like you always have. I love you and miss you soooooooo much! Please let grandma know that I love her to.
Oh, shoot and you know mom loves and misses you everyday like crazy. Mom is double heartbroken now that she lost you and her mom. But I will always be here doing my best to help her stay on her feet no matter what.
Here it is the year 2014 and I just found this and now I can send my thoughts of JJ. JJ was a dear friend, funny, always helpful, loyal and dependable, fiercely devoted of his love of family and especially Lourdes. I loved hearing about his family and friends activities. JJ was a wonderful friend and I miss keeping in touch about our lives even after I retired and moved to Washington. I am so thankful JJ visited me and my husband, Jon, in WA the year before his passing. Jon so enjoyed meeting JJ...how could he not. I am still in shock, JJ was taken too soon, I miss my dear friend and "Bud". It was a week or so when I found out about JJ' s passing and I was heart broken .My thoughts are always with you Lourdes and your family. He leaves a big hole in this world. Sincerely, Nardine
