The day has come for you to spread your wings and leave the familiar to pursue your dreams.
In your pursuit of knowledge never forget that one can be perfectly learned and yet utterly foolish. My word for you remains the same, “it is possible to have everything and yet nothing, but it is possible to have nothing and yet everything”.
Run the race with the end in mind.
I love you so much and wish I could be home to send you off.
You will always be my Sam baby. 🙂
I will always remember with fondness the times we got to spend together, especially when you were still very young. Putting you to bed and making up stories to amuse you (remember Apuneneh?), taking care of you when you’re sick in my usual crazy way, going marketing together and you accompanying me in my shopping, teaching in Hokkien Sunday school, and basically being my sidekick and little lamb.
I am sorry for the many times I have not been patient or kind with you. Thank you for loving me and being a faithful and supportive brother to nick and I. You are indeed the best third wheel in the world. We would hope to love to visit you someday and maybe, by then, we would have a little one to offer third wheel services to you and your beloved. 🙂
Know that with God, you will be able to rise above adversity, emerging only stronger and more useful for His kingdom.
Love you always.
