VALDEZ -- Robert "Bobby" Valdez For My Father July 10, 1943 - August 21, 2003 Daddy, on August 21st, one year ago, you left us. Time has dulled the pain of losing you, but has not erased it. You are not in our world anymore, yet you seem to be everywhere I look. Every time I see a "Hanna" truck, my eyes well up with tears as I look hard to find you in the driver's seat. Your message was comforting and reassuring; it left no doubt. Daddy I miss you. We Love You Very Much, Kelly, Johnson, and Cory.
