Remembering my dad: 31 years ago

I would consider myself to be one of the luckiest folks because for all of my life and as long as I can remember I have been so very fortunate to be blessed with great and wonderful mentors and this was what my beloved dad was to me.  

31 years ago on an Easter Saturday, April 02 1988, dad took leave of us when he passed on peacefully from a heart attack. Unfortunately for me I was not at his side when he left us but as I would always say, he was one of the finest mentors that I have ever known.

Dad was never afraid to share his knowledge and experiences with me. He filled my mind and being with endless info ranging from religion and politics to economics and history, and from geography and what I call street lessons to any and everything.

Dad was my main mentor and even today as I grow older and hopefully a bit wiser I can call on so many of his teachings and life’s lessons to help me navigate this stressed and busy world.  

I’ll never forget you, Dad, and I know that on that day when we finally meet again the sun will shine down on us in all of its glory. Then we will embrace and I will place my hand in your warm, welcoming one! I will hear your soft voice welcoming me home and I’ll rest my head on your strong firm shoulder and whisper in your ear, “So glad to see you again, Dad!”
