Sanchez -- Ignacio"Nash" SanchezDear Dad, Since you left to Heaven two years ago, no day has passed without the thought of you. It seems like yesterday that you left. But I can still remember vividly how I felt that day and I am reminded of what life was like just two years ago when you were in my world. The sad memories of that day and thereafter are still very intact. However, I also carry the happy memories of you when you were here. Although some time has passed the grief is still with me and sometimes I am overwhelmed with sadness because I miss you and wish you had not left. It still seems so unreal. But I believe you are still with me even more than you were in life. I trust I will see you again and I look forward to that very much. Please guide us and watch over us. Be happy where you are. Do all the things you enjoy doing like fishing. Until we meet again, With all my love, Your daughter, Jeanette.
