The Best Uncle Ever

Shared by Pam Tah on March 4, 2021
Pa Noah, a great Father, Uncle,  Writer and Intellectual. Keeper of the family, traditional, historical and cultural archives. He endured and came out triumphant, showing us what it means to endure with grace and faith.  He gave me the courage needed to withstand  raging storms. 
 God creates storms and gives the Noah. I only live to tell because of my personal and God given  Pa Noah. He literally  built the ark and put me in it. As the flood waters raged, I was safe in his counsel, I was safe in his words, I was safe in his prayers, I was revived by his Aura, I was comforted by his words and I will keep his memories. 
I wish for every girl an uncle like my Pa Noah was to me. 
Pa, I honor you - Pa, I Iove you -  Pa, you are a great man.  Take your well deserved rest.
