Roberto Carrillo Diaz Barriga (my grandfather) Febuary 2, 1910- September 11, 2010

Not so long ago I wrote about my grandfather, well it is a sad day today for my family and me as he passed away at 9:00 AM CST. After living 100 years 7 months and 9 days the day I dreaded, yet was mentally prepared for, has happened. Mind you I am not sad or grieving, but happy as he will now be rejoined with my grandmother. He lived a good and very long life and he will continue to live through the my generation and the next and the next. It will be very strange not to have him around anymore, but as I said before I knew this day would come, although I didn't expect it to come so soon.
So here is to my grandfather Roberto Carrillo Diaz Barriga, Morelia, Michoacan Mexico Febuary 2, 1910- Mexico, D.F. September 11, 2010, my heroe.

A toast to all the influential men in our lives!

Yes, I think you're right to toast your grandfather, Carlos. The man lived to be one hundred years old! That's a feat in itself. My goal is to live to be one hundred and one. I should be as fortunate as your grandfather. Here's to him!
