his Life

My dad

He was a brave man who would move mountains for you . He was a loving husband,  father,  gramps and a good friend to all.

The day you went was the hardest day ever still today I can't believe it happened if only you just came over to my house you would still be here. We all still in our home and ask ourselves why why why but it has happened and we can't bring you back 

Love you to the moon and back

I loved the way he would tell you a story. It was filled with detail. And of course when we had a drink or 3 in each others company. I love him very very much.
