Too all who visited my daddy during his hard fight to recover...especially for all the constant prayers...THANK YOU my friends, I will be eternally greatful!! On Jan 2012, drs gave my daddy 6mths, but thanks to those constant prayers & his strong will to keep living here with us, he got a glipmse of heaven on Mar, 2012, & God granted us another 5yrs!!! God sends the toughest battles to his strongest warriors & my daddy proved to be a tough one!! This battle was to test us, not to punish us, but to value what he gives us. I hope I passed God's test. I am extremely blessed to have had such an amazing daddy!! He loved me & my son, like no words could ever explain!!!
