Yesterday my dad retired. From day 1 after he landed in the United States until now, he rarely took a day off with the exception of occasional vacations; never a sick day that I can remember. Before he was issued full citizen status, he worked several jobs to support us, then worked his way to a career from bottom rung to the top. His colleagues threw him a surprise party at a hotel thursday. They told him it was just lunch but there were over 50 people waiting; some of whom had worked with him years ago. We sent him flowers & are having another party while in the States in a few weeks, & last night my mum & some friends celebrated with dinner. My dad is one of the most honest, fair, hard working, kind people I’ve ever known & I’m so happy that he ended his career on such a positive note. Golf time!
I love my dad :)
