The person that I’ve described best fits my Grandma. She knows all the right things and is there whenever I need her. My grandma is one of the most important people in my life and I’m so happy that I have her.
My father was an incredible man and he was beyond compare. He taught me to treasure every second with my family and never take them for granted. I look up to him and will continue to carry on his ___ legacy. Although he is not here, I look up to him as my guide in making my decisions.

No matter how bad or how good your upbringing, you will always be their son or daughter. I was fortunate to have two caring parents to nurture me and guide me, not only in the beginning of my life, but long after I reached adulthood. They are the people I look up to, draw strength from and admire. I strive to model my life in the same manner that they have lived theirs, for they are decent and good people and worth emulating.
So far the day has been an amazing experience and I am sure it can only get better. I would also like to thank you on behalf of Isia for all the love and help you have given her over the years. I thank you for making Isia the most loving, caring, sweet and kind person I have ever met. I really am the luckiest man alive.

Family : My Grandmother Mildred truly defined the word family as I have come to learn and live it.

Yes, siblings are like parents, but they are also their first best friends in life. They are always there while growing up, know everything, and love unconditionally.

My Hero, My Grandfather My grandfather was a very loving man, he loved his family more than anything he had known. The only thing that could compare to his love for his family, was his love for his country. In his life he would have to make many sacrifices for his country, and the second would be supporting his wife and kids. He took on hardships with ease, he always had a certain calmness to him, this is something I idolize about him, I would like to learn how to act this way. He’s my hero because he was special, not like anyone else I have ever met, he knew he was special, but he never he never flaunted it.
He taught me lessons on humility, selfless services self-knowledge, cooperation and “forgiveness”. Something I am still battling. I write this tribute to my Loving Husband with a very heavy heart. I love my husband very much because, of who he was. He was the soul of our family.
