I love this photograph of my father as a teen. Taken sometime in the late 1940s the photograph to me highlights the fun (and mischievous) side of his personality.
With WWII not yet over, at age 14 he left his home to find his own way in what was at that time a very uncertain world. I recall vividly some of the tales from his teenage years filled with details of interesting places, unique experiences and some colourful characters that ultimately shaped who he was to become as a man.
And although I would be horrified if my own now 14 year old son chose the same path to adulthood, with no fear and a lot of persistence it somehow all worked out for my father. He was a satisfied man. I feel his spirit inside me everyday. #myfather#mydad#father#dad#teen#14#14yearsold#1940s#cowboy#fun#mischievous#oldschool#nofear#persistence#spirit#missingyou
Tanpa banyak bicara, tapi sebenarnya sangat sayang
Tanpa banyak tindakan, tapi sebenarnya sangat peduli
Tak knal teriknya matahari, derasnya air hujan, dinginnya malam, tak peduli selelah apa tubuhmu selalu engkau penuhi pintaku
Sungguh begitu besar kasih sayangmu, hingga aku tak mampu membalas semua itu
Hanya doa yang bisa ku panjatkan, agar engkau selalu dalam lindunganNya
Walau tak mampu bertatap muka setiap hari, tak mampu berbincang bincang setiap waktu
Semoga selalu diberi kesehatan
I don't know what to say or how to feel. I'm just so lost...I miss you so much, I can't put it into words. You were such a strong person, a rock in my life.
Even now that you aren't here to share my life with me. You are embedded into my heart, still beating deep within me, feeling your heart beat with mine. The pain hasn't gotten any easier! You are in our hearts and minds so deep that the tears never end. You touched so many hearts.I want to give you such a huge, tight hug and never let go, ever! I want to tell you I love you, Oh, there is so much I want to talk about. I can't help but go to all the places where you and I used to go, bringing back all these memories, I love it, but it just makes me miss you more. I don't ever want to forget you, please don't leave my thoughts like you left my life.You were my best friend, my Poppy, my confidant, my rock. If God granted wishes, I would wish you back in an instant. God took you from us on the 12th of October 2017. I love you so much, Pops. Nothing will ever change that. I miss you more than I can ever explain.
Rest in Peace dearest Pops! #pop#father#dad#fatherandson#love#life#live#breath#air#unconditionallylove#beautiful#smart#strong#daddyskid#myair#myfather#proudson#rip#bestfriend#veteran#army#poudamerican#puertoricanpride

“Ya Allah, ampunilah dosa-dosanya, kasihanilah ia, lindungilah ia dan maafkanlah ia, muliakanlah tempat kembalinya, lapangkan kuburnya, bersihkanlah ia dengan air, salju dan air yang sejuk. Bersihkanlah ia dari segala kesalahan,sebagaimana Engkau telah membersihkan pakaian putih dari kotoran, dan gantilah rumahnya -di dunia- dengan rumah yang lebih baik -di akhirat- serta gantilah keluarganya -di dunia- dengan keluarga yang lebih baik, dan pasangan di dunia dengan yang lebih baik. Masukkanlah ia ke dalam surga-Mu dan lindungilah ia dari siksa kubur atau siksa api neraka).” .
