Obituary for Selene Nicole Rodriguez

August 11, 2019 was the worst day of my life. My world as I know it came crashing down all around me. At 7:00AM my beautiful, kind, gentle, amazing, and precious wife, Selene, ended her battle with Chronic Kidney Disease. She fought so very hard for so very long with that and other debilitating diseases. My Amorcito was sick for so long but even with all those obstacles she still lived her best life. My family and I are forever broken, she was our center; our hearts; our home.... She still is.

There's a void in the hearts of my children, Nicholas and Lauren, only she can fill. I don't know how I will help them navigate a life without their mother, all I know is that I have to try for them and for my Selene. As for me, there are no words to describe my heartache. My first night without her was the scariest night of my entire life. I hate our bed because she's not laying right beside me. I hate our house because without her it isn't a home and no other house will ever be. I hate this world because without her in it it's a colder, uglier place. My soul is shattered and I can't put it back together because I don't have my soul mate. My beautiful Selene was an angel on this earth and always had her wings. On August 11, 2019 she was finally able to spread those wings and go to heaven where she truly belongs. I know she's up there pain and disease free with her Grandmas, Anita and Andrea, her Grandpa, Manny, and fulfilling her promise to our cousins, Nathan and Sara. She's holding Panchito in her arms and taking care of him until he can be with his daddy, mommy and big brother again.

I love you mucho mucho Amor de mi vida. I love you forever and always. I know we'll be together again and until that day just know that I will do all I can to ensure our kids never forget how much you love them. I will live the rest of my life ensuring that our grandchildren know their grandma loved them with all her heart before she even knew them. I miss you oh so much Amor, I miss your scent, I miss your smile that could light up any room. I'm forever lost without you and all I know to do is try to go through this life just to find you again. I love you like I mean it! (Only she knows the meaning behind that).

Rest in Peace my precious gift and know I cherished every moment you were in my life.
