He has many fond memories of his childhood, including being rushed to get 16 stitches as a result of a classmate who accidentally hit him in the head during a game of brick toss, in the absence of balls and ropes that had been put away after hours by the schoolyard. Because of his injury, he missed a swimming event for his school’s Gala, but the school offered him two tickets to sit on the sidelines at the Gala.

His parents were hardworking and honest, and had everything but money, and helped him through many childhood diseases. As a person who truly loves himself, two songs that describe his life are ‘When a Child is Born’ by Johnny Mathis and “The Greatest Love of All” by George Benson.
