Overnight you were at peace, no doctor’s calls, no code blues, and you even made it to an hour and 15 minutes dialysis that afternoon. But who would’ve thought that a simple abdominal pain complain could hurt us a lifetime?

At exactly 6:30 pm that same day, that’s when you finally gave up after 3 days of battling with complications. Or maybe God saw you were getting too tired. We weren’t ready for that but if there is a place for you in heaven where there is no suffering and pain, who would not let go?

As much as we still want to hear your favorite songs play on their own, or see a silhouette of you always around us, we know that you should be resting in peace now. Just continue to watch over us from above. We are not yet okay but we will be as how it should be, in time… so don’t worry!

We love you, daddy. You will live in our hearts forever… The girls miss you a lot! We will forever miss you. Rest in peace…
