My dad is no longer with us but he was a fantastic man! He had been a wonderful father from day one. One of the things I have most admired and respected about my dad is the way that he loved my mom and he loved his children deeply.
My dad believed in hard work and instilled this in me. He worked extremely hard his entire life to provide the best for his family. From the first day until the day he passed, he reminds me to always “work hard at my studies so I can be successful in life.” My dad not only influences me through his actions, but also influences me through his words. He sacrificed himself so we could have more than he ever had. He has given me so much, including the most important thing in the world all of his love.
My dad was talented, artistic, quiet, loving and strong headed. He taught me that actions were much more important than any words spoken. He taught me that independence comes with responsibility. He taught me that family is fundamental, and love is our foundation. He also taught me how to balance humility with confidence, and that those two traits would get me far in life. He also taught me to respect my elders both at home and at school, and I always try to obey him. My teachers commended me for this and I owe it to my dad.
When my dad passed away it was the hardest day of our lives. I have no bad memories of my dad. He helped make my childhood special. Only the most gracious and kind Heavenly father would have been so wise as to have given me, the most wonderful dad. I thank God for blessing us with our dad. I miss my dad beyond words but I’m grateful for the time and memories I have had with my him. Happy birthday Dad, forever in my heart.
