Embracing his legacy

 
As we completed our trip in Corona Beach and made a last stop to eat, I looked at my husband’s watery eyes as he simply uttered the words, “I miss him so much.” He was referring to his grandfather, “Tata”. All I could do was hug him and say, “You did it, just like you said you always wanted to…you brought your own kids to Corona Beach. You are carrying on his legacy.”

As we are in the borderline getting ready to cross to the United States I ask Rockford, “Rockford if the border patrol agent asks you where you were born what are you going to say?” He answers from the backseat with certainty, “In Mama’s belly!”

Today we are heading out to a beach camping trip that has been long overdue…not so much for us as a family, but for my husband. For this reason I want to write my sons a letter to enlighten them on the significance and inspiration behind this trip by sharing with them a little about their Daddy’s childhood memories.
