I remember this one specific time, when I was younger. Before I left back to San Antonio Popo sat at the kitchen table with me and counted or some coins to give me to get a snack at the gas station on the way home. This is just one of the many sweet memories I have with this strong and sweet at the heart man. He always shared and loved in no other way. He was quite the looker too. I miss you popo. And I hope you know I will continue to live with your guidance over me. I know you’re my guardian angel. And ill make you proud. I love you so much. And miss you deeply. - your sophia ❤️
