This is how I always looked up to you, a Champion amongst Champions. A proud lion of his pride. Your heart was on your sleeve at all times and held us to the highest regard. You made sure we always looked after each other and enjoyed every moment in life. The smoothest of talkers with a charm that was infectious, I am so proud to be one of your sons.
Round after round you battled hard with this sickness for two years and you kept your composure, but this time you were out for the count. I may not be as brave and strong as you but I thank the Lord that I had you as my Dad to discipline me to the right path in life. We love you. We miss you. We'll see you again soon.
