  • Sad day for BigPapaErnest. :(

    I know there are quite a few of you that don't do Facebook so you probably don't know about the recent tragedy for the Leal family. I'm copying and pasting Ernest's posts for you here as he is/was an integral part of RTB and he sure could use some help and prayers now.

    On April 10th I became a grandpa. My granddaughter's name is Leilani Renée Leal, she is the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen in my life. I was able to hold her and just stare at God's beautiful creation.
    Papa E wanted to
    Hold you
    Hug you
    Kiss you
    Spoil you with love
    Have tea parties with you
    Let you mess up grandpa's hair
    Give you ice cream anytime you wanted
    Let you jump on my big belly and pound on my chest as you laugh
    Buy you dresses
    Give you pony tails
    Tickle you til you turn pink
    Steal all your kisses and hugs
    And just sit and stare are you while you sleep, memorized at how pretty you are....
    April 10th will FOREVER hold a BIG SPACE in my heart, as this was the day my first granddaughter was born....and it was also the day God wanted her to go home to heaven.
    It has been so hard to accept, but I know she will be in Great Grandpa Leal's arms as he will spoil her and give her all she wants til I go and see them both again.
    May your body Rest in Peace mamacita...but your soul forever shine upon us. I love you with all my heart mamas and each tear I shed is for you.
    A ray of sunshine came and went
    A beautiful treasure nly lent,
    In God's keeping quietly sleeps,
    this child we lved but could not keep.
