My dear great father of blessed memory, your departure to eternity fills me with much heartache, but your wonderful memories and legacy leave me with hope that you are already in heaven. You taught me that in life, challenges are inevitable but that what must remain constant in me is the belief that I have the innate strength to surmount them.
Beyond words, your journey of life is a comprehensive example of victory over hard times through faith in God, vision, and hard-work. How do I measure the stock of motivation and inspiration I have received from a loving dad through his wonderful lifestyle of love and charity, spoken words of wisdom and peace, and courageous actions of order and progress.
Dad, on this day the 22nd of May in the year 1930, the Almighty God gave you to mankind. Indeed, you lived well and departed this world on Friday, 28 of December, 2018. Father, on that day of your transition, I lost not only a father, but a friend and an idol that I looked up to.
My dear Daddy, I will always treasure all the wonderful memories we shared. While your death will forever cloud the sky with the awe of your loss, your life will always be a vivid one, epitomizing greatness, self sacrifice and hope for the living.
We miss you dad.
Happy birthday in heaven!
