Mudanya'dan dunyaya kanun ureten adam

Oner Kiran knew my father, knew of his kanun building business, knew of his illness and upon discovering that he passed away, he reached out to me and asked me to give him as much information as I cared to. He resolved to pay respect and honor my father in his periodical, "Gazete Mudanya". At the time that he sent me the completed pages about a month ago, I was still a depressed and emotional wreck. After reading the things which Oner wrote, I cried a little bit, but I also felt like a heavy wet blanket was taken off of me, like I was 50 pounds lighter. Oner's words are my words, rearranged and refined to sound beautiful and meaningful. We're eternally grateful.

Murat, this is awesome. I didnt finish reading the continuation part of the article because even I got emotional (I cannot imagine what I'd do if I read such a thing about my own dad). It's awesome. Seriously. Thanks for sharing it with us...I'm definitely coming back and reading it all when I'm less prone to get emotional about it :) That article is definitely something to pass on to future generations! Very neat...
