I stand before you today to pay my last respects and to say my final goodbye to my dear father Those of you who knew my father would probably agree that he was not an easy man to live with or love In particular he was not what you would call a good husband for he could only bring my mother a great deal of unhappiness He was extremely fussy and nothing that I did would ever please him He had no patience in music it was really just a noise to him He was particularly selective in picking out the right books to read no lightweight rubbish or anything whingeing For a long time I understood and perceived him the way that you do today but it was not until recently that I came to realise just how significant his life was to me He fully lived up to his standards which were the standards of his generation a generation unlike my own whose world views was shaped by the hardship and terror of his wartime experience Perhaps it is a generation whose world views that I may never understand Unlike the many other wartime heroes my father refused to talk about anything that happened during the war Ever since the moment my father came back he was a changed man There was something about him that was permanently lost taken away by the war of which words cannot describe At regular basis my father was a real falling-down drunk who would end up having to be hospitalised Yet he was never in his worst condition physically violent and he never swore I realised today that maybe through drinking he could truly feel at peace and perhaps for a while he could forget about all the terrible things that has happened to him To me he has always been a frozen man imposing a highly mannered life upon himself
