Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smile, I've only gone to rest a little while. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am now, but as I used to be. Because, I will remember you all and look on with a smile. Understand, in your hearts, I've only gone to rest a little while. As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

  1. “Daddy-0” you will always be missed dearly. You always had a smile and a joke to tell, but never at anyone’s expense. You always knew what to say and how to say it. To me you will always be larger than life, a gentle giant, with a heart of gold. You taught me more about life than I ever let you know and I think the world of you. To me you’ll always be the Greatest Dad a kid could ever have. Till we meet again someday.

  2. Mr. Rodriguez, although I never knew or met you, i thank you for my brother in law who has made my sister very happy. We want our parents to live forever so that we may continue to learn and to love from them. We are happy to know that you are with the lord now. God Bless you and your family.

I know he brought a lot of joy into my Titi Carmen’s life over the past 15 years, as well. I have faith that my Uncle Dave is in a better place now, and is no longer in any pain and for this, I feel relieved. Sending much love and light to all who are mourning this sweet man.
