He was a kind hearted person to all living things in this world. He taught us more about life and respect its existence. He was a hero and a champion of those who are powerless/voiceless when he was still young and living in the indigenous community. He is also a protector not only to his family but also to those who are fragile, vulnerable and weak. He will do his very best to protect them and shelter them from harm and life threatening hazard. He was a healer of those who are broken, shattered, fallen and down. He heal them with inspiring stories and heavenly wisdom. He heal people with jaw breaking jokes and encourage life tips and advise.
He was an ordinary man who undergone so many trials in life in multiple layers and stages. He was a man positively molded by scars and wounds. He was a man who will sacrifice everything he can for his family. He was a man who doesn't want to show his weakness (tears and illness). He was a man who will go through pain, struggles, difficulties, hardship just to ensure his family is happy and love.
He provide not just the need of his family but also lessons and learning that will equip his family into a better one. He provided happiness and joy in simple ways. He provided laughter and smiles not only in his house but to other houses he could reach. He provide positive change not only to his family but also others who are close to him and near to him.
He was also a man who undergone failure, imperfections, flaws, downfall and brokenness. But despite all those he ask forgiveness and understanding in order to bounce back just fall. Even if he was in pain and suffering you shown us endurance, perseverance, patience, and resilience. He didn't just gave hope and light to his family but also to everyone around him.
If given the opportunity to bespeak with you and spend time with you. I would love to spend it you're old ways.
