I know you don’t like birthdays god only knows that I would probably be the same when I’m older. Despite the fact, I want you to know that today is a special day to me, you are not only my father but my best friend. I salute you for the years lived thus far of power, wisdom, respect and perseverance, you truly make me proud. If I grow up to be half the man you are today, I’ll be a happy son. Happy Birthday Bu Jasem, I love you in ways that words won’t sufficiently describe.
