Remembering David Bowie brings his son, Duncan Jones, joy.

The Warcraft director honored his late father on Monday, nearly two years after he died and on what would be his 71st birthday, by sharing the silly birthday card he made for his father during the last year he was alive.

"8th of Jan again.  A strange feeling for me. I know how excited dad was to have a grandson on the way, & I made this card for his birthday having told him a month earlier he was going to be a grandad," the 46-year-old director wrote. "Makes me smile at our shared goofy sense of humour. ?
Happy birthday dad!"

"Im actually pretty cheery today!" Jones said in another tweet. "Dad lived ten lives in the years he had! There are many lessons he taught me, but todays most important one is this; don't beat yourself up. Ever. Learn, pick yourself up, & go do something new & brave!"

Happy birthday, Bowie.
