In Loving Memory

It is with the heaviest of hearts that I share we recently had to say goodbye to my dad, Rudy, a man whose mere physical presence had the power to shift an entire room. Combined with his boisterous laugh and undeniable charm, he was a man respected and adored by many. My dad was undeniably the most important and influential man of my life, and although we know he is still here with us and continues to watch over us, he is so dearly missed.

I am who I am today because of the father you were everyday. I love you, dad, and I will miss you everyday for the rest of my life.


Adrian was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. After graduating from the University of North Texas in 1999 he spent that summer backpacking throughout Western Europe. The exposure to new customs, cultures and languages opened up a whole new world and appreciation for all things foreign. Since that time he's traveled 5 of the 7 continents and had his passport stamped in over 50 countries.

    He looks -- and sounds -- like a phenomenal person. How lucky you were to have him, and how difficult it must have been to lose him. I'm so sorry.

    So sorry to hear of your dad passing Adrian. I enjoyed following along on your journey and, at least, I am glad you were able to make it home in time to spend time together before you lost him. Rhonda recently posted...Foto FridayMy Profile

    Adrian....wonderful tribute. It is both sweet and sour how we are shaped by our earthly fathers hands. I am quick to give him credit for both the good and the not so good in me that I stumble across on my journey. The good almost always outweighs the bad. But damn we miss leaning to them when they have passed.......blessing to you en theos....j
