Thank you for all the love, care and advice you gave me as a young boy. There have been many times in my life where I’ve heard your voice reminding me to do what is right. I made it to Canada and I can see why you loved it so much. The funeral via zoom was beautiful. God bless you and enjoy your beautiful new instrument in Heaven.
