Our hearts have never felt so heavy since you have gone and we have never felt so much pain. We miss you every single minute of the day, knowing that no day will ever be the same again.
Since the day you were born you were a fighter and you fought every single day of your life and especially your last days, you never fought so hard and we can only thank you for trying so hard for us.
We understand at some stage, we all have to say our final goodbye, however, we’re simply not ready for this and we just want you back, we just want you home with mam.
You once said “don’t say goodbye, it’s too permanent” and I stuck to it, my last words to you was “I love you and I’ll see you later”.
So, to my father- this is not final, this is not the end and this is not goodbye. This is the day that we won’t see you for a while but one day we will be reunited and until that day we will fight for you as you fought for us.
From your loving wife, Susan, your children, Sean and Lauren and your grandchildren, Riley and Callum Xx
