Happy Posthumous birthday my first love! It’s so strange to not have spoken with you on a day like this, I remember your last birthday, when we all sent you a cake and I promised myself to do better this year. I never knew it would be the last birthday we would celebrate with you. I still hurt knowing you left us too soon, but I know you’re in a better place and I am so blessed to have experienced the love of a father like you. I miss you Daddy, I just want to talk sometimes, but it’s ok! I cherish every memory I have of you, your words of encouragement and wisdom I will never forget. I miss you daddy and I will love you forever. My children and I will remember you forever. Continue to rest in the bosom of the Lord Daddy ❤️❤️❤️

It would have been your birthday today man m. May your soul keep resting. Today, even in tears, your memories warm my heart. I’m glad I came through you. I am proud to have had you as my father. I love you daddy! Heaven gained an angel when you left us. I will tell my kids about you, I look forward to that. I pray God sends you to me through my seed, He would bring me all the comfort I need if He answers my prayers. I miss you so much! I love you numero uno, forever and a day more.

Today would have been your birthday. Hmmmm. Grief really has no timeline and there’s no right or wrong way to go through it. They say that time is supposed to heal, I honestly haven’t done much healing. I still hold dear memories of you. I still love you like I always did. Keep Resting in peace my superhero daddy. My love for you will never falter, it’s till forever ❤️❤️

Adieu My Friend
We do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep'. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
Today we honor a man who was the epitome of Christian Hospitality—a man who knew how to show unconditional love and bring out the good in everyone. Today, we remember Goddy —a man of strong character and conviction. A man who will be truly missed. I wish I could be there in person to pay tribute to a great friend’s memory, but circumstances made it impossible. Yet, I could not let today go by without sharing my memories of this wonderful man—my friend and my brother.
He is was everything I envisioned true friend to be—loving, kind, generous, compassionate, caring, and simply remarkable! He had a beauty that shined from the inside out. Always giving both of himself and of his resources and never expecting anything in return.
While I will never get the opportunity to sit near Goddy again, I feel honored and blessed to have gotten the opportunity to know him. I know you are in a better place now; far from the hustle, bustle, pain and heartaches, as much as I say that, I wish this did not happen and I can see that smile and twinkle in your eye again!
Goddy, your departure has touched me so deeply.
