"From my view, some of the things that made you a great Dad (in our childhood, many of which you still do now) were:
You always prayed for usYou valued your children so much that you always talked about us, wanted us aroundYou spent time with us and we did a lot of things together (family altar, games, gisting, roasting corn, going out together), which created a family bondYou were a role model to us, an encourager and driverYou always sat us down and lectured us on the Word (of God) and other issuesYou treated all of your children out of understanding and not from a(n) old school mindsetThough you were disciplined with us, but it was done in love and not in too much restrictions (that's why none of us went out to do something different because we did not feel we were caged)You gave us a good environment for expression
Finally, you may not have had all the knowledge in the world but you helped us as best as you know how to, by the help of the Holy Spirit. Sincerely, Dad, you really tried. Nite. Ibk".
