I Thank You Lord

For Giving me a great DAD!, My Teacher, My Friend,

My Hero and now My SAINT.

For the great LOVE shown by DADDY, so much

LOVE that even with MUM's early exit, the vaccum

created was aptly filled by him.

For DAD's wonderful sense of HUMOR, always there

To douse any tension, this HUMOR has remained a

Binding force in the family and a

Characteristic TRAIT in all.



DAD lived out and has left us with no choice than to emulate.

For my MULTI-TALENTED DAD - A Cook, a Pianist, a Teacher,

A Farmer, an Educationist, a loving Dad, Uncle, Grand-pa, Brother

All in One- THE BEST!

For answered PRAYERS!, for in DAD's life-time, no day passed

Without a prayer said for a PEACEFUL DEATH.

His Life-time a reflection of peace, His Death

A reflection of peace- UDORAH

That I Can look at my life and say proudly that


For My Life and that of my siblings remain a GREAT REFLECTION

of what DAD and MUM stood for

For all the KNOCKS from DAD while he thaught us simple

Arithmetic, PRAYERS said over our lives, MASSES booked for us

(A RITUAL,  Dad performed even the day before he died).


For all the years (38 to be precise) spent with DAD on earth and for

The Knowledge that one day, because we serve a living GOD,

We will see to part no more

For The Opportunity and WISDOM to celebrate DAD(Our HERO)

In LIFE and in DEATH.

AND FINALLY for the wonderful and eventful two weeks DAD spent with us

In JUNE this year, a visit which endeared him to the hearts of his

GRANDCHILDREN and even their friends.






Your Last Child, Last Daughter and Special LAST.

Miss me, but let me go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free

Miss me a little - but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go
For this is a journey th"
