It has been two weeks since my father passed and I would like to thank everyone who sent kind words, gestures and gifts of condolence. Thank you very much and it has eased the pain of his passing so much. I will never forget him as he was a great father, wonderful grand-father, best friend, mentor and all around great guy. Thank you all once again for all the kind words and prayers.
