Honorable Discharge

My father passed away September 2012. I wrote this for him and it was read by my cousin Sereatha at his memorial service.  I would always greet my dad saying ‘Hi Pa’pa! and he would say back, ‘Hi Da’da!”

Honorable Discharge

How do we say goodbye to a husband who loved, provided for, sheltered and protected his family.

How do we say goodbye to a grandpa whose love was expressed through hugs, laughter, sound advise and wisdom.

How do we say goodbye to a friend who offered his technical expertise about what he truly loved to work with – computers.

How do we say goodbye?


We stand firm, hold our heads up high and we solute you.

Timothy 4:7 – I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.
