What I have learned much from him, was, a man should be a man. The one who is responsible for the well of the family member. Not just yet, he assuring that his family deserve what the best, not only in material gain, but as much as in spiritual and mental. His number one priority was education, both in secular and religious.
He was the man which is honest with his job. Embracing the portfolio with all of his heart, come what may. He might be the most honest, only then people take advantage on him. And as far as I'm concern, I'm now in his sunnah (pathway).
He, somehow can forecast the future far beyond our comprehension. If not him, I'm might be end up as an accountant, or religious teacher, not be able to know the best trade in me. Thanks to him, to be so strict, so that, I know where I should put my feet and be thankful for what I'm.
76 years and 4 years after his dismissal, and I miss him so much.
