In Memory of Teddy and Patricia Mercado

Never in a million years would I think that the post right after "In Your Honor" would be the post "In Your Memory." What can I say?

It's 2 months to the day that we lost both of your physical bodies but your spirits live on. Your love lives on as well. It is comforting to know that the love and the memories live on much longer than our physical bodies.

Teddy, you are my cousin, you are my brother. You always expressed your love to me like no one else could. Your words were so profound, kind and comforting. It is no wonder why you have so, so many friends and loved ones. You will live inside of me forever.

I am so glad that we had the opportunity to have a very long conversation just days before you left. You reminded me that you once told me that if we looked at the moon at the very same time it would close the distance between us. You told me so many beautiful things on how you love to make people happy, how you lived for your family and as always how much you loved me.

I was listening to some old voice mails and much to my surprise I had saved one of yours from Valentine's Day. It was awesome to hear your voice again. Thank you for that!

I keep seeing butterflies since your passing. Two beautiful butterflies came to visit me at mom's backyard. At different occasions one or two butterflies have flown around. One in my backyard fluttered all around my face and stayed with me for a while. There are many signs out there. You just have to be aware and see them.

Mr Big Stuff, my GI Joe there will never be a full moon when I do not look at it and think of you.
You are FOREVER in my heart!
