You have been a gift and father figure to so many. You have such a tender way of bringing out the best in others. I know that's why year after year students would come back and find you to thank you for the investment in their lives. I know that wasn't about school but about being a second dad who believed in them, being a mentor who imparted truth to them, being a light sometimes in a very dark season of life at home.
I love you so much! What a gift God gave me in making you my dad.
Thanks for always encouraging me to fly (and enjoying me making quite a buzz)!
