“I will sorely miss him. When I was in secondary school, my biggest ambition was how to drink beer with my father. Very funny right? We had many of those times. We’ve done trips together we even shared some friends. When they come to see him, they’ll see me too and he will be like wow! And we’ll both laugh. We had good times I must say.”
