Trevor was one of the men that I could look up to and he was one the people that always knew how to make someone smile whenever they’re feeling down and I always enjoyed going to his class everyday. He was father figure to me and he was one of the most respected men I knew and he one of the best dads in the world he made me a better man. But he was a man of his word he wanted to become a teacher and he did that I hope I see you soon

Relation: sister
