My father was and always will be my inspiration to be the best that I could be. He guided me in my life towards becoming better educated. Although it was a struggle to maintain my travels on the straight and narrow road, I always found my way back. No matter what. I value the morals that my father introduced to me and strive to fulfill them day after day.
He also taught me that "Your family is all that you have, and you need each other". I wish he was still here so I could tell him that "Dad, now I understand". I see the value of everybody's life a little bit more now.
I never thought that there would be a day that he wouldn't be there to correct me, or that he would stop caring for me, which I often took for granted.
To you, I want to thank you for being a part of my Father's life ~ whether you are family, a friend, a co-worker, or acquaintance. You enriched us all.
