He was a cutie

Was he a cutie or what? I call my dad Papi Lindo because to me he was most handsome. Even as a child he was a cutie. I don’t how papi was in this picture but he looks two or three. My grandparents were very proud of their little sailor. He was a very dedicated son. I don’t know the whole story but my grandfather, Gerardo and my grandmother Inocencia (which means innocence) were seperated in my dads teens years. My grandmother had cancer and my dad took care of her and his little brother, Ernesto. My dad left with still many stories to tell. I hope to discover some as I write and remember.
Don’t wait to share your story to your kids. If you still can record your parents and grandparents stories. Old stories bring much joy once your loved one is gone.

In Cuba your middle name was the saint of the day. my dad’s middle name is Froilan. He got stiffed in my opinion but that is what people called him because he had his father’s name. But when it came to baseball his name was Ningo.

As much as my dad loved my mom and I, he had a mistress that followed him from Cuba to the US. Her name was baseball. His favorite was The Yankees. Morning, noon and night baseball was on his mind and part of his conversations. ESPN was his best friend.
