Asher: “As the eldest son, it is up to me to say a few words about my Dad. But how to do you sum up in a few paragraphs how much someone means to you? I have asked myself that a hundred times over the past few days and I came up with, you can’t. You can’t do most people justice in so few words, and that is certainly true about my Father.
He was the kind of person I hope that I can be, the kind that loves his family and works hard for them and for himself. The type of person that knows his limits and does his best to stick to them and most of the all the kind that knows his flaws. And doesn’t shy away from them, but tries to correct them as best as he can.
What I remember most about my Father is how much he wanted his children to be good people. He always instilled in us the importance of being kind to those around us, and to help them when they are in need. He always made sure we knew the value of family and the importance of being there for each other in both times of happiness and in times of sorrow. He always told me ‘Asher, be sure to take care of your Mother and the twins when I am not here’. And I always told him that I would. And I will, Dad. I promise we’ll take care of each other now that you’re gone.”
Having nothing left to say, and not trusting himself to speak much longer, Asher motioned to his mother to take over if she was ready…….
