I feel a great sense of loss to
officially announce that after we
fought so hard, my father passed
on the 27th of May, 2019.
My father was a GREAT man. He
has always been the man I’ve
looked up to. Growing up, I watched
him work so hard for so little. He
was very honest and has never
been interested in shortcuts.
Hard work and integrity meant
everything to him. My father. I will
always remember, what he said in
this statement: “I’ve been in service
far too long to let quick money ruin
my reputation”. This was my Father.
He is forever to be remembered as
a teacher. My teacher.
We all know that teachers weren’t
big earners but my dad would
ensure we always had everything
we ever needed.
My Dad was so loving towards me.
My father often wanted me to
toughen up, it’s funny because he
was the opposite tender and
sentimental about me and my
Sadly, I was not done making him
proud, there are dreams I had with
him in the picture, I don’t know
guys, I really wasn’t done.
I find little solace in something I

are depths of grief that I have never
dived. But God…God will figure it
I thank you all for your prayers, your
support, your kind words. None of
them have gone unnoticed. I pray
the love you’ve shown me will be
accorded you in your time of need.
To my Dad, the greatest man I will
ever know in this life and the next,
sun re o!
Adieu papa. May your soul rest in
perfect peace.
