I miss you, I miss you everyday. I’m not doing well. I think about you all day, everyday. It’s six weeks today from the phone call I never ever was prepared to answer and hear (5:10pm). I listened to an old voicemail you left me one night. It was so kind of you and wonderful at the same time. I am thrilled to hear your voice, my eye’s watered immediately, the tears started. I listened to your voicemail again, again, again. I close my eyes, see you holding the cell phone leaving me a voicemail, I love your voicemails! I closed my eyes, saw you for those seconds, minutes of the voicemail you left. I miss talking to you, your laughter just because. I listened to your voicemail again. My heart has been pierced with pain, heavy on my mind, longing for hugs, just simple hi mom! I feel endless pain has been stabbed in my soul. Son, yesterday was International Bereaved Mother’s Day😪.Yes, Son, Yes Félix I miss your voice. I miss you. I miss everything, my Forever 37. Always Mom😪💔🤍🪽🕊️

My son you received your angel wings young. You were ready to meet the Lord, I know Jesus accepted you in his heavenly home. My son knew God and a good heart. Felix received his Catholic Church Sacraments. I was not really to say bye, Felix you said your at eternal peace and resting. Felix is with our Lord.

Felix you have no sickness, no pain, you have beautiful eternal perfect peace all around you.

I’ll see you my son Felix, I’ll wave, hug you tight,
my heart and soul will hold you.

Felix, you and Timothy have 25 years apart brotherly bond you both share like no other.

I’m a grieving Mama who wants one more phone call, saying love you mom, always hugs.
Love and Miss You So Much, Always Mom (Lisa as I hear you call me at times and vividly the other day. 😪🤍🕊️
