Leonardo is my grandfather.He was the husband of
Virginia Cruz Flores, and the father of my mom and four other children. My grandfather came to America with his mother and father in 1916,at the age of 5.My grandpa and his dad worked side by side on the farm to make a living.They planted fruits and vegetables, and hired some men to deliver the crops to markets. My grandfather was not famous, but he did have talent. My mom told me lots of stories. He was a great dad to my mom and her bothers and sisters. He taught his kids what his dad taught him. I just feel bad because I only met my grandfather twice in my lifetime. I was only six the last time I saw him and spoke to him. In 1998 I was only 14. My mom, my sisters and I planned to visit him during the weekend. But on thursday we got a call from my aunt. He was working on something outside of his home. It was a pretty hot day too. His wife came out, she saw that he was in pain. He died of a heart attack. Our trip to grandpa's house had to be cancelled. I didn't get my third chance to meet him. I had many questions to ask him. Now they will never be answered.
