A dear cousin, but most of all, a beloved friend since childhood. Then, our own lives parted ways. Just like many of us, we left our country when we were young. Then, after so many years, we’ve been reconnected thanks to social media and phone calls. Distant calls that became very often in the last two years especially because you were very interested of the family reunion we’re having next month. A family event with your all out generous support. You never fail to mention your excitement and enthusiasm of meeting everyone in our family from near and far. And we were also happily looking forward to seeing you again very soon. We will terribly miss you dear cousin. Although, for you, there’s a much glorious reunion that you’re having now - the one with our departed ancestors and kins! Have fun everyone while we try to have ours too down here. Our love and prayers will always be with you!

Provider, husband, father. My dad was everything I needed and more. I have faint memories of him in most of my youth, but I am proud to say during those years he was out on this earth providing for his family and our country( 24+ yrs. US NAVY). He has contributed so much to everyone around him and we all should cherish the time we had with him. Rather than mourn, I will celebrate the life my father had in this world ( and in the beyond), because as I look through life I must be grateful, there is always someone out there less fortunate and whose loved one has came to rest at a even sooner time in life. I love you dad! hardest worker I know.
Finally you get to rest..
Love your son,
