My granddad, Pablo Segura, passed away early this morning. I was able to see him on Saturday along with all of his 4 kids and 7 grandkids. I am thankful he got to be at home when he died. He had been in the hospital for a few days before but we all knew he wanted to be home.
I am thankful for the legacy he left behind. Family was the most important thing in his life and he made sure that his grandkids knew that. He also always talked about the importance of education as well. He worked very hard to complete his education at a time when it wasn't usual for a Mexican American to go to college. He started college, left to fight in the war, and went back to finish. I know the next few days are going to be difficult but I look forward to remembering who he was.
