It’s been 9 years. The calendar represents years passing, but my heart argues differently. We miss you every single day and I don’t think there is a moment where you are being mentioned in a story. My girls are getting big and very involved in sports. You would have loved watching them play. Mom goes to everything because she knows you would have. She misses you and is still so in love with you. We all are. May you hear these words in heaven and know that even though our hearts are still broken, we keep moving forward. I love you daddy.

We're still here, Daddy. We miss you so much and think of you every day. You would be so proud of Max, finishing his first year as a film student. Sophia is kick butt in high school and taking college classes. Julia is in middle school and finding her way and so grown up. You should be here to see it. Until we meet again...I will always love you.

My love: All of our children were able to visit this holiday season. You must be so proud of them and of your grandchildren! How I wish you could be here to council Dan in his challenging job in law enforcement and Sean as he takes his LSAT and prepares for Law School. Riley is quite the athlete. Reagan as you predicted is a free spirit, comical, honest, and full of promise. Ali is bright, sweet and kind. Max, Sophie, and Julia are great students and remember you. Julia speaks fluent Spanish! Sophie is bright and independent. Max will be scouting colleges in the spring. Danny is starting to talk. You never met him but somehow, I believe he knows you. Kevin stands by me and has found his true love, Kat; you would like her. Michelle is the consummate mother and she preserves the past in all that she does. Janine is the dedicated and loved teacher who is the "clean freak" like me. She is also an amazing mother! The boys are loving cooking, like you. Your mom continues to go to the "Center" and while growing a bit slower at 95, she continue to be proud and witty. Kristin still thinks of you as her Dad . Brian misses his poker partner and biggest fan. Ari continues to be your New York buddy. The guy you completely understood. Kim, Sean's fiance, would be someone you would love. She is a sportswomen and high achiever. Loves Sean! Me, I remain in love with you and will be here, waiting, should you chance to find me.

"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds -
and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of -
wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind along
and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air.
"Up, up the long delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
put out my hand and touched the face of God."

First, to Hector, I miss you--a lot. Second, to the entire Molina family, I can't believe that it is in essence the 5th holiday season without him. I'm so sorry for you and hope you are all doing well. There are about 10 people that make me hope there really is an afterlife and he is an important part of that list. I wish you all a happy holiday season. LT

Seeing messages from old friends warms my heart. I know you "always" held them in yours. As is since your death, my love, I am half of what I was and will not be whole until we are together again. Until then, your friends, children, and your mom, bring me peace.

Pressing heavily on my heart this evening. I love you daddy, I miss you so much. Riley is growing up so fast, such an athlete. You would love Reagan, she is something else. You knew she was special. I love you and pray we are making you proud.

I sent this to my dad on his 60th birthday:


You are memories of: Lums dates, scary movies, big screen TVs, giant chocolate chip cookies, playing Jaws in our pool, the little monsters under my bed, paddle ball, Joe Z lunches, Maseratis, Corvettes, and Yachts, shopping at Christmas, the Disney game, Space Mountain, the Kingdom Queen, cabbage patch dolls, Picasso, lunch at the Waldorf Astoria, my Pink Panther, finding Santa in the sky, great hugs from strong arms, never ending kisses, the Hoover Dam in Las Vegas, the Monster Cookie at Carlos Murphy's, adventures in moving to Nevada, Bibsy on my 13th birthday, trips to Tahoe, dancing with me at my wedding, rubbing my tummy when I was pregnant, and holding my new babies in your arms...I could make this list about 1000x longer and hope it will continue to grow for many, many more years.

I remember Hector on he Squad I was assigned to at the Hollywood Police Department. He was a professional Police Officer and I considered him a friend. I'm sorry he left his family and this world at such a young age. He acomplished much in his short stay and will be missed by his family and many friends.
God Bless Him.

I first met Hector when I met my best friend Kathy. We both had babies together in 1974 and worked together, played together, laughed and cried together. I remember going to the Forge with Kathy and Hector after Kevins birth and being introduced to Dom Perion Champagne. I hated that they moved but could understand why. I loved visiting them and enjoyed learning about playing baccara at Caesers. We have remained friends even if we didn't always communicate. My prayers and thoughts go to all of you. Your love of family and friends will get you through this hard time.

I met Hector in the fall of 1986. He showed kindness when most fathers would not have. Strong as a bear but as kind as can be. I just knew he could reach out and crush me if he wanted. Instead, he offered advice and help every chance he got.
My heart goes out to his entire family.

"Dear Daddy, I can’t believe it has been 8 years. My mind comprehends time, but not my heart. I see you everyday, it’s just different. I see you in my children, my marriage, quotes, sayings, a song on the radio, a rainbow. You are missed. ❤"

"3 years...........I miss you so much. You would be so proud of Riley, she is the tallest girl in 3rd grade and is such an athlete! Reagan is sassy and very busy, you told me she was trouble. She makes us laugh and she saved me. I love you Daddy!"
