It makes me feel very proud to hear of how many of you thought of my father. Thank you for your kind words and sincerity. Some of you I know and others may not know me but I just wanted to say thank you very much for my father is on my mind everyday. I remember the day he didnt pick me up from school and that was when I think o felt something was off. I was only 6 years old going to Ryan academy at the time but even I knew something was wrong. I had spent many days to know a fathers love and I just wanted to say thank to all of you who shared something , a story or an event it really helps me to know the man my father was and how greatly he was appreciated. I will never be the man he was but I try everyday. In short I miss you pops and I wish I could've had just a little more time to know the man you were. I'll see you tomorrow like always...your son!
