Dad's funeral went well

It was Dad's funeral on Thursday and everything went well, I think we gave him a good send-off.  Henry came to the service and was a great comfort to us all.  I managed to do my reading and poem OK, I hope Dad would have been proud.

Love you Dad

Henry and Dad

Henry and I are missing my Dad so much, we still can't believe we'll never see him again.  I'd like to share some photos of Henry with Dad when we went on holiday in October.  They loved each other so much, Henry helped Dad through all his ill health and the ammputation of  his leg.

R.I.P Dad - you will be missed

I'm very sad to say that Dad passed away in Intensive Care at Exeter hospital on Friday 11 November.  I still can't really believe he's gone and keep expecting to see him sat in his chair.  Henry's all confused and out of sorts too, bless him.

I'll be taking a break from blogging for a week or so, while I help mum sort everything out.  I'll sort out outstanding competitions and reviews once everything is settled.

R.I.P Dad, we love you x

The night from hell!

Dad was rushed into hospital again at 1am this morning.  We thought we had lost him, but thankfully the paramedics resusitated him.  It was a very close call.  He's stable now and is responding to treatment.  I've been at the hospital all night and am exhausted so I've come home for a rest.  I think Dad's used up another of his nine lives!
