Dad, It's been three years since I saw you draw your last breath. So much has changed, but I remain consistent and resilient in the face of difficult and unimaginable challenges...just as you would. I stand firm. Your provided a legacy of decency and appropriateness which I work to instill and reinforce. I'm saddened by the thoughts of you not being available, but joyful in knowing you are complete happy.
2 years ago, I went to see the Bengals play the Chargers on this day...you were with me in spirit. Last year, I was in Tainan, walking where you walked 49 years before, today...nothing significant other than managing situations, relationships and expectation in a way you would agree to and see fit...in short, be of good character.
Thanks for all you instilled in me through not only words, but actions. Thanks for teaching me to appreciate things, appreciate people and actions. I'll do my best to do it right and continue in the face of adversity. I miss you.
