Living On

"Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life." - Albert Einstein

This quote is so perfect. It really embodies how I feel about the passing of my father. I guess people say "passing" because they believe the person is just passing through life.

My father is going to live on. Forever. I embody so much of his personality and am often reminded of how much I am like him. I look like him, I act like him, I entertain and cook and make people feel comfortable like him.

My brother has his humor, his generosity and his work ethic. He has his gentle heart and his lessons in his head on how we were always taught to do the right thing.

My brother's sons will carry on the family name; and if we, along with the rest of the family do our job by keeping the memory alive, they won't soon forget their Grandpa Sal.
