10 years ago today, my dear grandpa Abuelito went to be with Jesus. To say we miss him wouldn't do the hole in our hearts justice. He was the kindest man, a hard worker, a true gentleman...and he had the sweetest disposition and the gentlest soul. The Prayer of St. Francis was his favorite song/prayer and what I remember most about him is that he always made all of us feel so very loved.
Every day he and my grandma took coffee to work in a thermos like the one in the picture and at exactly 4:00 p.m. they drank their coffee and shared it with anyone who was there at their shop, often with a little treat on the side.
The littles and I had our own little "cafecito" today... hot cocoa to honor the kindest man I've ever known. We read St. Francis' Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace and Grace had lots of questions about Abuelito. Brought back lots of sweet memories.
Miss you so much, Abuelito!
