“Death only exists when they forget you and I will never forget you Dad”… Under this premise, Ana Patricia Gamez and his family changed their Halloween costumes for a tribute to their culture, especially in the first ‘Day of the Dead’ without his daddy, don Juan Gámez, who passed away a few months ago.
For more than 5 hours, Millie morales, Ana Patricia’s personal makeup artist, converted her, her husband Luis Martinez, and his sons, Giulietta Y Gael, in a united family even in the afterlife.
Of course, Anita made her first altar to her father. Every detail was made with his hands, and perfectly recreated the same one that we have seen in the film ‘Coconut’.
“Death only exists when they forget you and I will never forget you Dad, you will always be present in my heart 🌹 I remember you and my soul fills with joy, for everything you gave me while you were with me. Will always remember you. #Day of the Dead”With these words, Ana shared a video of how she prepared an altar for El Día de Los Muertos for her father.
What does each offering on the altar mean?
“Lays chips are because he liked them a lot, whenever he came (to Miami) he bought them and the Powerballs is because he always bought lottery bits in Mexico or here … He said that one day he would win it and buy him one he marries all his daughters “, Ana Patricia told us exclusively.
The beloved presenter of ‘Falling in love’, also shared images of how on this special day, don Juan’s tomb was decorated and how his sisters and his mom also made altars in his honor, in this first year of his death.
