My parent(s) wanted me to first and foremost, live a fulfilling life, whether it be by giving or receiving. They consistently encouraged me to be kind to everyone and to never forget that the path to happiness comes from serving others.
My parents also wanted me to always keep God at center of who I am and to never forget that he is my Lord and Savior. They wanted me to be a good husband, a good father, and a good uncle.
Last but not least, my parents wanted me to pass on to my children the riches of knowledge and kindness that have crossed my path so that someday they can become pillar of hope, and a beam of light, for someone in this world.
