On a personal note: My Father was a great man who loved his family and friends.
He went above and beyond at all costs to try and make our lives better.
I will miss talking to him and getting his advice from time to time and without him in my life I would not be the person I am today.

I will miss him with all of my heart but I know he is in a better place and no longer suffering in pain.
