As my time at USF comes to a close there's one thing I can't help but find troubling me during this transitional period. On December 8th 2016 I lost my Grandfather to cancer. This was a man who, throughout all my life, treated me as his own son. He looked out for me, took me to school every morning, helped me practice sports and pushed me to achieve great things in my life. He imparted his wisdom on me and taught me so much of what has made me the man I am today. He was a kind and loving man who, even in the face of death, taught me the importance of family and looking out for those you love and hold dear. I never posted anything about his passing because I didn't deem it necessary, nor did i want to fill your guys' feed with depressing news. But during this last week of my bachelor degree, i want to pay tribute to the man whom, without his influence, i would not be where i am today. Asi que gracias por todo Abuelo, Te amo.
