Unforgettable: A message of remembrance and gratitude from Rosana Góngora Pat, on behalf of herself and her family in Teabo, Yucatán.

Un 7 de abril como hoy hace 3 años nos arrebataron a la persona más importante de nuestra vida, esa persona que lucho mucho para llegar hasta allá para sacarnos adelante y darnos lo mejor, 14 años sin vernos, sólo su voz podíamos oír, sus risas de alegría, cuando platicábamos con él, sus consejos y sus bromas porque él siempre fue una persona muy cariñosa y por eso mi mamá, mis hermanos y yo lo amábamos y siempre teníamos la esperanza de que algún día nos volveríamos a encontrar y no los arrebataron sin poder decirle un adiós, esos policías tan crueles y despiadados. Son unos animales porque nadie merece morir así como ellos lo mataron, lo mataron como si fuera un animal, han pasado 3 largos años como si fuera un ayer, con la esperanza de oír sonar el teléfono y sea el quien nos habla, aún no hay resignación en nosotros, aún nos duele saber que él nunca volverá, pero a pesar de todo esto quiero agradecerle a Adante Pointer, a Adriana Camarena quien se ha convertido en parte de nuestra familia, a mis primos Luis Poot y Carlos Poot, a sus familias que nos han apoyado en todo desde el momento que supimos lo que había pasado con nuestro papá, queremos agradecerle a mi tío José Góngora Pat por ser valiente, guerrero y un luchador porque él a pesar de todo su dolor y coraje que lleva adentro ha sabido enfrentar todo y dar la cara para que se haga justicia por la muerte de su hermano, gracias a éstas personas que hemos mencionado logramos levantar y darle honor a mi padre, queremos agradecerle a Adante por representarnos en los tribunales, llegar hasta San Francisco, agradecer a mis primos y mis tíos José y Carlos Góngora, porque nos estábamos olvidando de él, la ayuda que nos brindaron y sobre todo a su familias por aceptar recibirnos en su casa con los brazos abiertos, jamás se nos olvidará ese viaje porque conocimos lugares donde nuestro papi trabajaba, vivía, en donde iba al béisbol u mucho más, gracias también a Melissa Nold por dar la cara y representarnos para llegar a San Francisco, el viaje fue largo, nos pusieron un reto porque jamás pensaba que lograríamos llegar, pero lo logramos, gracias también a esas personas que nos brindaron apoyo, esas personas que el 7 de cada mes están presentes en el altar para acompañar a la familia y dar su apoyo, no nos cansaremos  de decir gracias porque todo lo que han hecho no tiene precio. Son personas que valen mucho, muchas gracias por todo, mil gracias. On a day like today, one April 7th, 3 years ago, the most important person in our life was taken from us, that person who fought hard to get all the way over there, to get ahead and give us the best, 14 years without seeing each other, only his voice we could hear, his laughs of joy, when we talked with him, his advice and his jokes because he was always a very loving person and that’s why my mother, my brothers and I loved him and we always had the hope that one day we would meet again and they snatched him away from us, without us being able to say goodbye, those policemen so cruel and ruthless. They are animals because nobody deserves to die as they killed him, they killed him as if he were an animal, 3 long years have gone by as if it were yesterday, hoping to hear the phone ring and he be the one speaking to us, there is still no resignation in us, it still hurts us to know that he will never return, but in spite of all this I want to thank Adante Pointer, Adriana Camarena who has become part of our family, my cousins ​​Luis Poot and Carlos Poot, their families who have supported us in everything from the moment we knew what had happened with our dad, we want to thank my uncle José Góngora Pat for being brave, a warrior and a fighter because despite all his pain and anger he has carried inside, he has confronted everything and stood up to demand justice for the death of his brother, thank you to these people we mentioned we were able to raise up and honor my father, we want to thank Adante for representing us in court, getting us to San Francisco, gratitude to my cousins ​​and my uncles José and also Carlos Góngora, because we were forgetting to mention him, the help they gave us and especially their families for agreeing to welcome us into their house with open arms, we will never forget that trip because we visited places where our daddy worked, lived, where he went to play baseball and so much more, thanks also to Melissa Nold for standing up and representing us to get to San Francisco, the trip was long, we were challenged because I never thought we would achieve, but we did it, thanks also to those people who gave us their support, those people who on the 7th of each month are present at the altar to accompany the family and show their support, we will not tire of saying thank you because everything what you have done is priceless. You are people of great worth, thank you very much for everything, one thousand thank yous.
