    Hey Dad, may the wind sail always in your favor wherever you travel. I miss you already but I know that someday we’ll meet again. Please look over my family and protect us from falling into the cracks of deception and help me do the right moves whenever I need it. I’ll always honor your name and help preserve your family commitment since these you have shown them to me. I’ve been very fortunate to have someone as yourself support me in all my endeavors and will make you proud. Because that’s what sons are supposed to do. You have lived a long and prosperous life Dad which many of us would be lucky enough to enjoy. I hope you didnt suffer much pain and am glad you can finally lay to rest. Go ahead and enjoy you family and siblings in heaven where the fun never ends. Love you Dad. I’ll see you in my prayers
