Te quiero con todo mi alma / querido precloso hijo / May the shape of this candy cane that of the shepherd's staff remind you that the lord is your shepherd tenderly and lovingly caring for you. May the white stripes remind you of the purity of the Lord and the red stripes remind you of the blood he shed for you. May the sweet taste always remind you of the sweetest gift ever given that of eternal life through Jesus Christ, our lord. When you see the candy cane this and every Christmas.  Don't remember my Marcos with sadness remember him with joy as he has eternal life with Jesus.
