When this month rolls around I am transported back to the earlier years of my childhood. I recall the hurt, confused and foggy days after this tragic day but I also remember what you have done for the men in this family. We all wanted to make a difference in the lives of the people around us and to become what our grandfather and what you had emulated for us. I tell other individuals in my life how the traits that you possessed help me become the best I can be without any excuses. We all miss you but what you have given us lives with us forever. Every morning I pray and offer my pollen so you can protect us even now, Thank you uncle for all you have done and continue to do for the Tachinii family.
