“Dear Father;

Life gave me so little time with you, I had so many chances to be around you and I let them go thinking I had so much time. Life without you will never be the same, but I know you are with God and the suffering has stopped. Dad, until we meet again I will remember you with so much love and I can't wait to see you again someday.

I love you.”

Per Juan's wishes there will be no funeral services.
