My Father David R. Rivera passed away this year. I still don't know how to cope with, or even grasp the reality of a world without him in it. Nevertheless, as painful as it may be, I know I have to keep moving forward. Part of doing so is remembering what an amazing person he was, how much love he gave, how much he was loved by all (especially by children and animals whom always took to him immediately), and of course how he mainly communicated his emotions through the music he would play for us. I feel like now that he is gone, listening to his music library is like listening to a foreign language without an interpreter. That is why I felt compelled to share some of that library here. It's barely a tiny fraction of what he would listen to, and I can't customize it like he could to communicate to you how much I miss him. So instead, I set the playlist to random in hopes that you will find something that speaks to you. Give it a listen. Not just with your ears, but with your heart. That is what he did. That is how he lived.
I miss you so much Pops. Thank you for all the music and memories...
With all my love,
--- David D. Rivera
