    Default My Dad

    My dad died this morning.
    He died from a long term illness; I will miss my dad.

    He was a famous journalist in Mexico, plus his award winning work with lithography, earned him a letter from the White House when he made a picture of John F. Kennedy utilizing his autobiography, words, letters, spaces to make the picture. His work was displayed at the John F. Kennedy museum and at one time, at the white house. Before computers, this was accomplished with molten lead single letters, it was a log and tedious process. A few streets and neighborhoods in Mexico carry his name as a form of honoring his lifetime work. The university of Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua Mexico is named after my dad. HE was given some national and international awards, plus, his dad, my grandfather is the one that gave me the passion for bees.

    Pray for us on this difficult time.

    My prayers are with you Aurelio. You can truly be proud of your father. The most important thing anyone can leave behind in this world is a legacy of good works and the example of a life well lived.

    May you and your family be at peace keeping your Father's legacy alive. He may not be physically available to you, but as long as there are people that remember him he is not really dead. From what you have written and what I have seen from the articles he would have been an interesting person to have known.

    Thank you for sharing a glimpse of his life w/ us.

    It is a hard business my friend. We are never old enough to become orphans and lose parents. What a proud legacy he left you. I understand better why you are the good man you are. Respectfully Vance

    My prayers are with you and your family. As myself, you have been blessed to be raised by a wonderful family. The greatest thing we can do in our life is to pass these same traditions on.

    Thanks to all of you that sent your condolences.
    We are fine for we know our dad is where there is no pain and suffering. We were raised under the Christian faith, and we believe my dad went to heaven.

    Thanks again.

    I know this experience will change you forever. Just remember all the good times you shared with your father and all the love he gave you throughout the years. He is not gone. He will live in your heart forever.
    Do not grieve his loss my friend, rather celebrate his life. This has gotten me through many difficult times.
