    I am so sorry to hear about the death of your father, he was a very special man. I will always remember the times I stayed all night at your house playing cards and watching stupid WWI wrestling, and listening to your dad speak chinese, japanese, or whatever it was that he heard all day long at work!!!!!! He is a memory in my childhood that I will not forget.
