Reflecting on the statement, he wrote, “I hold myself accountable for my son’s growth and demeanor. It’s true, he follows my example more than what I say. Especially during the times he says that he wants to be just like me. It takes constant guidance and discipline.”
Then, he listed things he wants Gavin to strictly follow as he is growing up.
“First, he needs to respect himself, his family, the women he meets, and most especially take care of His walk with the Lord.
“To work hard more than just relying on talent. That we’re not perfect and that mistakes are part of the journey to success.”
Another value he wants to impart: “Family first always over work.”
The retired cager admitted to feeling pressure as a parent, stating, “There’s so much more I need to live up to for my kids.”
Kramer welcomed the new year at home with his family, including wife Cheska Garcia, Gavin and his daughters Kendra and Scarlett. He and Garcia have been married for 12 years. NVG
