Dear Dad,

Ever since I was a child I have admired you and looked up to you as ‘my superman’. This never changed over my life and never will.

Thank you for your love and many sacrifices.

I will always treasure the memory of our daily red wine get together which became a tradition you looked forward to and equally cherished.

Your loving son,

– Michael
