Can't forget that midnight when my wife's phone rang,it was a call from home to tell me that papa just stroll on. Painful,hard to accept, but it's a bitter pill I just have to swallow. According to the book of Ecclesiastes 3 v1 ,that is the appointed time for that. The tears can't stop falling from my eyes each time I think about you. Good night papa!!!!!!!!!!!!
