It’s been one year…

We think about you everyday, but more so as we come up on a year since you’ve moved on.

It’s been a year of tremendous change for all of us, and I so wish we could reach out to you and abuelita at our weekly facetime chats.

But we know you are with us

In those passing moments,

When Teo and I are talking

When my work gets challenging

Métale mano (get your hands in it)

You are with us

A force under our wings

And for this we thank you
