George, This is such a touching and poignant tribute to your father. I especially appreciate the following lines:

"But in Africa, in my fathers legacy, a mans life is lived not for himself, but for his family. Every waking day, every morning shower, and every beating of the sun was taken not for himself, but for his family. "

I am so sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Amy
