have a memory or condolence to add?

Kevin W Chapel Jr

You have left me with so many memories. There is no way I could possibly share just one.

Instead, I want share a few of the moral values you have instilled in me. Being accepting of people who differ from myself. Having compassion for others who need it. Having the generosity to give or help people in need. Having the integrity to stick to those moral values. Being kind, considerate, and treating others well.

I know this separation is only for a short time. But, we love and miss you deeply. I will see you on the other side very soon. I love you Dad. ❤️
