Three years ago today, my father passed away. It was this event that got me started on musically writing my feelings down and recording what eventually became the Family Values album. Within the track, I tried to musically describe my fathe...r's personality. Calm, patient and very caring. He was EVERYBODY's friend. His favorite saying to us kids was "Ity-waba"; which to him, this meant "get off my couch." I love and miss you pops.
