Talal Mustafa 1937 - 2012

PowerPoint Presentation:

Our dad was born July 8, 1937 in Cochabamba, Bolivia. He was the oldest of 4. He left behind a large family when he moved to the U.S. in 1964.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He had just married our mom, the love of his life.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He and mom went everywhere together.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Theirs was a true love right from the start.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Dad earned his medical degree in Bolivia

PowerPoint Presentation:

and moved here when an opportunity couldn’t be passed up.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He taught himself English while getting his degree,

PowerPoint Presentation:

all while learning a whole new culture and way of life

PowerPoint Presentation:

with no other family but our mom around.

PowerPoint Presentation:

That is, until his 3 daughters were born…

PowerPoint Presentation:

and 5 grandkids who all loved him very much.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He was an honorable man, our dad.

PowerPoint Presentation:

So much that he never went into private practice

PowerPoint Presentation:

because he couldn’t bare the thought of charging people.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And he was so intelligent…

PowerPoint Presentation:

We considered him a walking encyclopedia.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Because there was no topic he didn’t know something about…

PowerPoint Presentation:

Our dad never held a grudge…

PowerPoint Presentation:

… which is something we wish we had inherited.

PowerPoint Presentation:

He preferred a hammock and a good book, swimming, crossword puzzles or playing chess

PowerPoint Presentation:

to watching TV any day.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Not only was our dad a compassionate and dedicated doctor….

PowerPoint Presentation:

He was also a great painter, a published poet, a harmonica player…

PowerPoint Presentation:

Until his arthritis made all those things impossible.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Our dad was a modest man with a wonderful heart.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And while it’s hard to imagine our lives without him…

PowerPoint Presentation:

we can take solace knowing that he is no longer in pain…

PowerPoint Presentation:

will be reunited with his dad,

PowerPoint Presentation:

will write more beautiful poetry in the heavenly realm,

PowerPoint Presentation:

will paint more pictures (can you imagine the views up there?),

PowerPoint Presentation:

and swim in the oceans of heaven.

We miss you and love you, papi. You will never be forgotten. Nos vemos en el cielo, mi amor. :
