Dad will always be remembered for making us laugh. He cherished his family, his wife’s cooking and the horse races. He loved entertaining his family and friends. His unconditional love and the memory of his illuminating smile will forever warm our hearts. We will miss his personalized birthday songs and blessings. Dad always said “The place you’re in now, I have already been and the place I’m in now you too will be”. Farewell dad, until we meet again.
