Dear papa, aka the real monchis aka jefe aka pop,

First off, happy Father's Day. But the truth is, one day isn't enough to pay off all that you have done for my brothers and me. You are the true meaning of ride or die. You've always had my back whether it was helping me in school and making sure I stayed out of trouble or driving me to get extra training sessions at the park. No matter what, I could and can always count on you. If I am able to be half the man and dad you are to my brothers and me, I will be more than happy.

You showed what the real definition of grind is; with your work ethic, your sacrifices, and most importantly your dedication. If it wasn't for you this dream of mine to play professional soccer wouldn't have been possible. No way. You were my first coach, my agent, my athletic therapist, my chef, but most importantly and on top of everything else, you are and will always be my dad.

And to all the soccer dads out there, I want to thank you for your endless effort in helping us achieve our goals. Whether it's playing professionally or just playing for fun in recreational leagues, your support means the world to us. The quality time we spend with you at the soccer field is truly priceless! You guys have no idea how greatly we appreciate your time and effort and what it means to us kids.

Always remember and never forget, you guys are our first and real heroes. We love you!

Thanks for being our number one fan and our coaches, on the pitch and in life!

I love you pop. Te amo papá.

Te extraño. Te mando un beso y abrazo (I miss you. I send you a kiss and hug.)
