13: Good Evening Ladies, Gentlemen, family and friends, Tonight is a special evening as we celebrate my daughter’s 18th birthday and this makes it more special as you all are here to celebrate with us. Tonight would not be the same without all of you. In Roan’s 18 years, each one of you have a story to say about my daughter and some just seeing her for the first time, you all now are part of this amazing memory in her life, a night she will remember fondly for years to come. 18 years is a milestone for all of us – you all remember when you were 18, right? For all the young ones in here, 18 is a new beginning for all the adventures that lies ahead of you. There are no more parents to take the wheel for you – you have the control. We as parents just hope that we have instilled good moral values to our children. Roan as a young child was a very determined girl. I remember when she was about 2 years old and she wanted to have a cookie that was set on the table but she was in her high chair, so she rocked that high chair until she was able to get it. Unfortunately, she rocked it hard enough that her high chair fell and she had to be rushed in the emergency room to be stitched in her forehead. And yet again, the next time she saw a cookie, she was still determined to have one. As years had passed, I saw my little girl growing up to be a young woman – no more training wheels but I see her growing up to be like my wife – a very determined girl. She speaks her mind respectfully, funny, God fearing, loving and above all she is hard working. Even when things are failing around her she still would get up and try her very best the next time. As Roan enters this new chapter in her life, I am a very proud father to know I have a loving daughter. I pray that God be with her at all times. I hope she remains sweet with a loving heart. Happy Birthday!
