The last time we spoke to Marcos was on December 21, 2020. He told us how much he loved us and to make him proud. I didn't know what do or say after that so I took to my journal. This is an excerpt:
"Marcos is POWERFUL. To go out on a note like that is a testament to the power he wants to pass through onto us. Is it tough? Incredibly. But that’s how we make him proud and that’s how we move forward.
It’s important to know that being powerful does not mean you can’t be emotional. None of us can imagine what went on in his head. To go through with all that strength gives us no excuse not to carry on.
I know he’s happy and at peace now, but how we honor him in our lives is how we keep his happiness living. "
I like to think that one of the ways we've been honoring him has been through the Jimmy Fund. Marcos' 3.5 year battle against Osteosarcoma was brutal so help us raise money for the institution that gave us the most time possible with him and help future Marcos's beat the damn thing.
We might not see Marcos at the finish line, but there's no chance he'll miss it.
Miss you, brother.
