Tribute to my father: A Life of Vision and Legacy

My father, my first love, it still feels surreal to imagine a world without your physical presence, but I know I must find strength in your memory and keep moving forward. Throughout my life, I have seen you share yourself with the nation, and though at times I struggled to understand it, I now see that you were fulfilling God’s call for your life. You poured out your gifts generously, leaving an indelible mark on everyone who had the privilege of knowing you.

In my younger years, I couldn’t help but feel that life wasn’t fair, as your endeavors often took you away from us. It was challenging to comprehend why you were willing to subject yourself to risks and make sacrifices. Yet, now I realize that the thing I most admired in you was your unwavering determination to pursue your vision with excellence. You were a man of dreams, and you fearlessly followed through with them, despite any naysayers or doubters.

Your true freedom came from embracing your purpose and making the most of your time on this earth. What struck me most was that you never pursued your visions with only yourself in mind; you always considered your family and even those who you knew you might never meet. Your selflessness and love for others is something I aim to emulate in my own life.

Even as you approached the end of your journey, you were still planning, still envisioning a future where you could dance with your grandkids, passing on the joy and passion for life. I celebrate you Daddy for living a life of purpose and leaving behind a legacy that will forever inspire and guide us.

As I face the world without your physical presence, I will cling to the invaluable lessons you thought me. Your belief in the power of visions, the importance of determination, and the significance of living life for others will remain ingrained in my heart. Though you may not be with us in body, your spirit will forever guide and comfort us in times of need.

Thank you for being an extraordinary father, mentor, and friend. Though I’ll miss you dearly, I

find solace in knowing your legacy will continue to shine brightly in our lives.

Farewell for now, until we meet again someday.
