In Memorandum

You walked me to school, where I discovered my first words.

You walked with me to the library, encouraging my love of books.

You were the one who told me “I could achieve anything I wanted, all I had to do was try”.

You played the joker, but instilled in me a work ethic to succeed by.

You were the only man I wanted at my graduation and the best man I’ll ever know.

To the man who was my father in all but name:

You will be missed.

Cherish your parents – life is too short.
