Good morning mijo: Belated Merry Christmas to you in Heaven.... I put some beautiful flowers on your gravesite for Christmas.. I went yesterday as I always go but yesterday was a day I needed to be there before I spend the day with your brother, Rudy, your sister, Christina, your daughter, Vanesa and your sister-in-law, Melina... We spend the day at Rudy's and Melina's house, eating, thinking and talking about you, memories we had of you, crying and wishing you were with us... This is the third Christmas without you... I spend the first Christmas in Greece with your Vanesa and the last two have been at home... This Christmas was the first Christmas I decorated the house and put the Christmas tree up... I only did it because your daughter is with me... My Christmas' will never be the same.
I was looking at pictures when you, Rudy and Christina were small opening your gifts.... The smiles.... How I wish I could turn the clock back when all of you were small... You are tremendously missed... I hold onto all the memories I have of you... I close my eyes and I can see your smile... I miss your hugs, kisses on my cheeks and just you being around... I can now say you are in a better place.... and someday mijo, I will be with you.... Always know that though you are not here with me physically, I hold you close to my heart everyday... I love you yesterday, today and tomorrow.... Mom
