Happy Father's Day

Eugene Barney Abiang
I really wish the quality of this picture of a picture was better.  But we don't have a scanner and it's my favorite picture of him so it's good enough.  My dad's dad was a photographer and would constantly use his kids as subjects and my dad hated it.  So he was usually behind the camera when we were growing up, resulting in not a lot of pictures of my dad.  Anywho, 15 reasons why you were the best Dad for me!

1.  You were So patient while helping me with my math homework.
2.  You taught me how to surf.
3.  Shoe shine Joe?
4.  I loved it when you would tell me your childhood memories.
5.  You could turn your pidgin on and off.
6.  You gave more service to others than anybody else I knew.
7.  You worked SO hard for your family.
8.  You could only make saimin and toast.
9.  You had the cutest crooked smile!
10.You laughed out loud with me while watching South Park.
11.You would go watch scary movies by yourself and introduced us to Endless Summer.
12.You loved Aunty Donna.
13.You repeatedly played that song that had a motorcycle in the beginning and had a fun taste in music.
14.You thought mom was "the cat's meow."
15.You would and did everything for your daughters!

I love and miss you dad!  I'm so grateful to know that I'll see you again someday.  Even though your not here I want to wish you a Happy Father's Day!
