ALDERETE, PORFIRIO We thought of you today, but that is nothing new. We thought of you yesterday and will tomorrow, too. We think of you in silence and make no outward show. For what it meant to lose you, only those who love you know. Remembering you is easy, we do it everyday. It's the heartache of losing you that will never ever go away. We miss and love you Daddy! Love, Rebeca, Frank, Alan, Cindy and Brenda
