Farewell, Daddy!

My father passed away today.

He wasn’t the perfect father: he made many and grave mistakes, he missed many opportunities…

But I am really proud of him: in his later years he took responsibility for his life, he took steps to change himself and to restore relationships.

I know it wasn’t easy for him.

He confessed his weakness, he confessed how hard it was for him to change at this age…

And in doing so he won my heart back.

Yesterday, when I heard him for the last time, he sounded like a man who knows the end is near. But he was not desperate or scared. He was STRONG

My Dad was a strong man, and he had a big heart…

People say that we don’t choose our parents but if I could choose, I would have chosen the same again!

I love you, Daddy! I miss you! I will always remember you! And I’ll be proud of you!

Your son…
