I don't have the words to express how much I miss you. I was with you when you breathed your last. Me, daddy's girl. From a tender age you told me that you loved me, and I grew up knowing it is normal to openly tell my father that I love him and vice versa. This is not common in the African tradition but you loved me and said it out loud and that was it. I'm glad that I told you that I loved you, glad that you knew. I will always cherish all the wonderful memories. I know you are watching over all of us, mum(the love of your life) - whom you loved so much ever since high school, my 3 brothers whom you brought up to be respectful men ,and me, daddy's girl. We all miss you terribly. I miss you terribly. I speak with you all the time and I know you can hear me. I love you Vava.
Your only daughter,
