I was pleasantly surprised when Uncle John, one of papa's junior in school, whom he had kept close contact with, told me something papa had never told me before.
Papa had told Uncle John:
I was quite shocked and surprised, albeit in a nice sense, when Uncle John shared this with me. Papa had never told me such things, and likely if he had lived, he would probably still never tell me, knowing his character.

Papa, just you watch me from heaven.
I'll do my best to glorify God and Jesus, and I'll do my best to make you proud of me. I'll go as far as I can for Jesus.
Watch me, papa.
