to see the he was only 23 when he passed...this is his son again...i am now 28...5 years older than what he had been...sadly I have already liven more life than he had. I did not get to step into his footsteps, but that does not mean I can not honor his legacy. I am going to school right now to be a pastor. I feel that God uses us in different ways and lets us see different things in life by the experiences that we have. I want the world to know that there is life after death and the end does not have to be the end for those left behind, it can be a beginning. A beginning of something brighter and more. The ones who pass would not want us to give up everything in mourning, but continue on in life and make the most of every day. This is my wish for everyone in life. Dad I may not have been able to know you, but a part of you still lives through me. Thank you for giving me life and allowing me to show the world what you stood for.
