Memorial for Arlee Villanueva

Hello family and friends,

It’s been a couple days since my father was found deceased and everything is really starting to sink in and becoming reality. Anyone close to me knows that I grew up without my father in my life. When he came back into my life a couple years ago I let go of all anger and resentment I may have had towards him in my heart and I gave him a chance to make things right. Like I’ve said before getting to know him was like getting to know a part of myself that was locked away all my life. It was very scary at first but after a while it felt right and I was able to open my heart to him. In this short period of time I know that he would have dropped anything he was doing for me and his grandchildren. He tried to make up for lost time and I appreciate that. I know times are very hard right now but given the circumstances I’m in I do need help with preparing a memorial for my father. No one is ever prepared for something like this to happen. I knew my father was sick but I didn’t know this would happen this soon. So if anyone would be willing to help big or small it would be so very much appreciated. Thank you.
