  1. My dad passed away last week.
    Even though I knew it was looming, I didn’t know it would come so soon. I was hoping to have more time to get acquainted with the idea of death and what it means for those of us left behind.
    Now I am beginning to understand just how naive my existence was before I was forced to confront deaths discourteous blow.
    While I hope you never have to experience such a life altering loss, the truth is, we all will.
    Death is a part of life, and once it strikes someone you so dearly love, your existence will never be the same.
    I know the pain of losing my dad will perhaps never leave me. I imagine it will ease with time as I process through it, but I don’t suspect I will ever get over it. How can I ? How can you get over a person who has been there since before you were even aware of yourself?
    Dads life his influence, his energy is inextricably linked to mine and now I take comfort in that. I take comfort in knowing that my dad is no longer short of breathe, that his suffering is no longer something he has to endure.
    My dad “Frank” will forever be in my heart. I am grateful that I am becoming a more fully realised human being, a more caring compassionate and empathetic person because of my dad. Still, I would forfeit any wisdom for the sake of having him back.

  7. Frank is my dad, I am one of his beautiful girls.
    I am known as fatty, curly, smiley, skinny or ky and I reply to all.
    I wanted to tell dad just what a really incredible man I think he is. Not only is he gorgeous, but he is a really good human. He married my mum, Margaret, and hooked a stunner, and they had us six girls- yes 6 and we lived in a 3 bedroom house with only 1 bathroom.
    Dad gave us a wonderful life. He loved us unconditionally, well there were a few conditions.. he provided us with everything we needed and gave us so much more. He loves our husbands and our kids. He was all about us and not much about himself. A man of simple pleasures, he didn’t care for the riches that many other men crave. He didn’t need them, he had us- his family, it’s his world and he is ours………

    I love you so much dad and I’ll miss you everyday. You are a great man and I am so blessed to be your daughter.
    Rest now, it’s time.
    Love ky xxx
