Frederick to his son: 

I want you to believe deep in your heart, that you are capable of achieving anything you put your mind to.  That you will never lose, you either win or learn.  Just go forth and aim for the skies.  I can’t promise to be here for the rest of your life, but I can promise to love you for the rest of mine.    Love Dad

Son to Dad:

Thank you for the courage, honor, and pride you have instilled in me.  My accolades and achievements are due to you and my mother.  I will ensure those values are woven into generations to come.  Thank you Dad.
