I will teach you to respect, appreciate, and love a woman. To open doors, take your first bite second, and be a source of strength, security, and caring.”
Kiptyn also stressed that the “importance of passion in all aspects of life” should be something his son strives for. “When you find your passion I will support you, encourage you and stand behind you no matter where you find it. Your happiness will always be enough to make me happy. You will never be alone in this world.”
