You’ve always been an added blessing in my life. I often think about the times we shared, hearing your two year old voice in my head, singing the song you made up in your car seat, after returning from one of our trips to Toys-R-us. “Eddie Papi is the best!”
I laugh whenever I think about when you attended Tutor time nursery school. Since only the male teacher assistant was in the class, you refused to let him take you to the bathroom. With tears in your eye’s you looked up at the teacher and said, “If you take me to the bathroom, my daddy will kill you!” Automatically triggering a call from the school.
I always wanted to be your protector as any father should. I flip through our pictures from all the prison visits, seeing how much you and your sister have grown, reminding me of all that I’ve missed.
I’ve been the cause of many difficult challenges in your life and I apologize for that. Although you haven’t been to see me in a while, never think that my unconditional love for you will ever diminish. You know like I know we share that unbreakable bond. You also know in your heart that….Eddie Popi is still the best!
Love always Daddy.
