Sentimental Sunday: Happy 100th Birthday, Daddy

Gilbert Cayetano Huesca (1915 – 2009)

 

Everyone knew this gentle man as Gilbert Cayetano Huesca.
But to my sisters and me, he will always be our “Daddy.”
Of the many things he did in his 93 years, my father couldn’t be prouder of anything more than his family. “She looked into my eyes,” he said of my mother. “I looked back into hers. We were very much in love. How lucky I was. How lucky I am. And here (all of you) are the results.
 
Today, November 1st, is my father’s birthday. He would have been 100 years old.
 
He showed his love for us: my mother, my sisters and me, our husbands, and our children – his grandchildren – in words and actions, every day. And that’s why, no matter how many years go by, his love will live on in the hearts of our family.
 
I think we were the lucky ones. But blessed, too, so very blessed!
 
Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love you with all my heart. xoxo
