My Dad sadly left us on the 25th June 2013, remembering him will be easy as I do this everyday, its the pain of loosing him that will not go away. Love and miss you dearly Dad
My Dad was a strong man and worked hard all his life, he had some very funny witty ways about him, he had a heart of gold but you knew when he was mad.. He was loved by many people who feel his loss, his wife Win, daughters Tina and Caroline and grandson Bailey.
Nobody wants to lose their Dad, my Dad had always been there for me - he was the person who showed me what it means to take responsibility for your life, to be determined and to work for what you want. He was absolutely intrinsic to everything that 'family' means to me. A life without him seemed unthinkable, not only for myself, my sister or his grandson, but also for my mother who was faced with losing her husband of 44 years.
Dad worked on the docks for many years before taking retirement to work part-time for John Grose, he was a regular at the Half Moon pub and the Felixstowe Labour Club..
These things happen to people every day, but you don't really understand how it feels until it happens to you.
