You have left us here heartbroken, but we know that you are resting in peace like you deserve.
Now you have joined your other angel, and I ask that you please watch over my mom, my sister and me from above. You are our true and only champion.
Thank you for raising me with values, with honesty, with sacrifice and for doing the impossible for me to be able to achieve my dream of being a tennis player.
I don’t know how I’ll live without your presence, but I’ll definitely apply everything that you taught me to never give up. I love you pa!!
