For those super close to me (Veronica Rodriguez), you know that I lost my dad the day after Father’s Day to a heart attack. Traditionally, I run away from everyone and spend about a week at a national park, far away from peoples’ Father’s Day posts, BBQs and commercials on “what to get dad”. Well as life would have it, this year a full week wasn’t available to sulk, and it got my head spinning on ways to keep the spirit of my incredible father alive.
What I’ve learned from grieving is that we all grieve in different ways. My way is to talk, remember the good times, laugh and share stories. I know there are people out there that want to share their memories, but maybe those closest to them don’t grieve the same way and aren’t able to talk or listen. I know that’s how I felt 🙋🏽♀️
That’s why I created Daddy’s Girl, a YouTube series to continue the legacy, keep the spirit alive, help those grieving and, who knows, maybe empower a young dad or two that their lil baby girls are watching them in awe. New episodes are released every Sunday.
A platform for guests to talk about their best memories with their dad.
Empowering dads that their baby girls are watching them in awe.
