Rest in Peace Dad, Richard G. Pulido 1928-2012
March 17, 2012 | Rosanna Pulido

Posted on 03/17/2012 9:15:39 PM PDT by chicagolady

Today I said goodbye to my 83 year old father Richard G. Pulido. I brought him home 1 week ago as he decided to stop doing dialysis because there were so many other things going wrong with him. It was my first hospice expeience and for the most part it went ok.

My father, a man of Mexican decennt was the most " unlikely Conservaive" Teaching me and my sibling the golden rule first and foremost PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY!

My father handed down to me a great work ethic. He made himself successful with out a college degree. He had smarts and the desire to succeed.

My mother and fathers first launguage was SPANISH, but he never let us ( His children) learn spanish. He only wanted to speak English!

During my time as a woman of hispanic origin speaking out on illegal immigration, he aplauded me sood by my side and affirmed what I was saying was absolutely true.

I love my dad and I have been his caregiver since March 2009, It was when I was running for Congress and won the Republican nominaion, my father had a stroke. My God has taught me family first and do unto others as you want done unto you. SO I moved in with my dad and keep an eye on him. He has been gettting progressively more unable to care for himself.

I am blessed by God to have a strong sense of duty. I have taken care of my dad from then until now and I count it a privledge to be able to serve him unto his last breath here on earth and into Jesus arms!

Thank you Lord for the life of my father Richard G Pulido.

I 'll see you soon dad! I am sure the Lord said to my dad this morning as he took his last breath: Welcome Home Richard!

Thank you for your ardent testimony about your father and you and your family’s love for him and what he stood for. God bless him, and you and your family. I pray the Lord Jesus Christ’s comfort for him and you all. My parents are with the Lord. I pray that, on that day when I will need to make the same decision about continued dialysis for my wife, that I will have your courage to make it. God bless.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I had a funeral to go to today and it was real hard on me, and I was not even immediate family.

Sounds like you had a great father.

he never let us ( His children) learn spanish. He only wanted to speak English!

My late wife was born in NY to Italian parents and they wouldn't teach her Italian. Her father got off the boat at Ellis Island shortly before WW_I and was soon in France as a US Soldier. He lived the rest of his life as a proud American and US Army Veteran.

In short, your dad was a father to be proud of.

May he rest in peace.

God Bless you, Lady! I know your pain...and I know this one thing about a father...God Almighty has provided us with a father to lead us...that earthly father is a spiritual connection in our lives to our Heavenly Father..In this world somehow it has been distorted, the role of fathers...Know this, God WILL restore all things.

Rest in peace, Richard.

From another 83-year-old Chicago lad on oxygen 24/7. Been on and off hospice this year, but watching the news makes me so mad that I don't want to go until I find out how everything is going to end. If they figured how to pipe talk radio over to the spirit world I'd probably have no objections about leaving before my time. I've also had a bunch of problems and wouldn't mind taking a break from the pain pills, etc.

Lived on the south side, west side and north side during the years I lived in Chicago. Spent most of my childhood there carrying ice to the tenements, loading pop bottles at Comiskey Park during games. My dad worked for Mack Truck down the street from the ball park. I imagine your Dad and I could have had some good talks.
