“Let us all be remembered

For the lives we touched
For the people helped
For the wisdom we shared
For the stories we told
For the laughter we initiated
For the love we gave
For the affection we showed
For the good role models we were
For the communities we inspired
For the youth we guided
For the hungry we feed
For the needy we assisted
For the success we created
For the risk we took
For the world we changed
Let us write down our stories
Let us tell our experiences
Let us record our tales
Let us share our struggles
For our children
For our grandchildren
For generations to see
For generations to hear
As a source of hope
As a source of wisdom
As a source of guidance
As an example of our legacy

So what will you leave? “


I love you dad. You are leaving a big hole inside of me. Pinch me.. I still don’t believe it has happened.. You know when you feel that it’s not meant to be. Well - it wasn’t. Many people has felt that. It just wasn’t meant to be. It feels like a “bad joke”, like he was taken by accident. That wasn’t supposed to be him!!! He was rushing to finish his life-time work.. He was rushing to leave his legacy.. Dad - don’t worry.. Your family and your friends will now work hard to attempt to do that.. I love you and miss you very much..
