Motata, there are no real words to describe how much you are missed. Your love for life and positive energy made everyone around you feel so much better. Thrills purple gum, sunday yellow daar, $2 and $5 dollar bank notes that you would often force into my shorts as I rode off on my bike, the way you crossed one leg and rested your ankle on the other knee, the way you put your fingers together and formed a diamond shape while you chatted with my dad under the tree in the backyard, the way I would poke fun at you when I heard Phabi call you shubby, how your smile never changed when you removed your dentures before bedtime and the many, many times you would come into our room early in the morning on Saturday and pull the curtains behind and say' get up and start your day!' I then learned you drove over to the Gurdwara on Middlefield and Finch and regularly had their 'Langars' better known as sacred food services offered to anyone. You invented the name Short and this is her missing you. One of my all-time favorite songs is the lambada, I remember this music video playing on repeat in the house, with the lady at the end in her skimpy yellow bathing suit... we would look at each other and smirk at this part. Many evenings you would sit in the office, sending faxes to so many people, refilling the receipt cartridges to make sure what you sent was sent. I would overhear you talking to dad about Angola and putting on your glasses late at night to watch the discovery channel. These are just some of the memories I have of you. I will never forget your constant encouragement and telling me day in and day out 'work hard in school and stay straight and then buy yourself a brand new Honda.' Yesterday was a very hard day, but you looked so beautiful and your face was so bright. I love you and I am always thinking of you. I miss you. Short aka Paduk.
