We would like to begin by thanking everyone for being here today in the midst of these uncertain and unprecedented times. I would like to say we are here not to grieve the loss of our father, but to celebrate his life. He was our hero and the rock of our family. His numerous acts of kindness and generosity were endless. His heart for the poor, the sick, and the lost were always evident. There was no donation box or homeless person he could walk by without offering something. This was because he knew what it was to be poor and hungry growing up in Iraq. Through education he was finally able to get to America. Although he came here with nothing, he worked hard and eventually had the means to bring his parents, sisters, brothers, and their families to the U.S. for the hope of a better life for them. He knew he was fortunate and wanted to share as much as he could with everyone and anyone.
Family, food, and friends were what his joy was all about. When we were young, whatever food or drink he knew each of his kids liked he was always sure to stock up on and never run out. Every day, before he came home from his 12 hour shifts at the store he would call us and ask us what treats we wanted him to bring us. We would wait eagerly by the door for him to get home and jump at the brown bag in his hands full of the candy we requested. From Cedar Point to Niagara Falls, none of the seven of us children can remember a vacation we took that we were able to sit in our station wagon comfortably because our father would pack as many of our cousins and relatives into it that would fit because he wanted them to have fun too. We called him "Ponderosa Man'' because there was never a buffet he would not pull over for and treat everyone to. It made him happy to go to the fruit market to buy cases of fruit or vegetables just to pass out to others. It made him happy to be able to share with others not only monetarily but also in his knowledge and advice of the ins and the outs of running a business. He wanted everyone to succeed. He always rooted for the underdog, because he knew how it felt to be the underdog. He enjoyed offering his words of wisdom from educating any one that was interested in everything he had learned from history, life lessons, and to current events. There are too many stories to tell about his generous nature. That is just the kind of man he was.
In closing we would like to say we are all here because of the death of our father who we all loved. We will all face death and no one will outlast it. We cannot fight death with money, education, health, or anything else. We will all ultimately face it as sinners in need of forgiveness. We will all face death as someone who receives eternal life that comes to us through the shed blood, broken body, and resurrected life of Jesus Christ. While our father was no saint we believe God was working through him in his many acts of kindness. Near the end of our fathers life we believe and pray that he came to this realization. There is hope for our father and everyone here today that no matter what he or anyone else has done. God has a place for him in his heart and that salvation can be found.
