Hi Dad, I hope you are ok up in heaven, I can only comfort myself with the belief you are happy and in a better place. Yesterday was the 7th anniversary of you going to live in your new abode and it stills feels like it was only yesterday. I still miss our chats, our teasing over the football results, your cheeky mannerism, your smile, your laugh, but most of all I just miss my Dad. You were the only man who took on the role of being the father figure in my life and you nailed it. You are amazing and I miss you so much, love you lots from your Amanda xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Dad, happy birthday, today you would have been 90 years old. I am imagining you still being here and enjoying the huge party I would have organised just for your special day. A special day for a person who will always be special to me, I miss you lots, I love you lots, you are still my idol and I still wish you were here everyday. Love from your Amanda xxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Dad, sorry I have not left a message for a long time. Yesterday was not easy, it does not feel like it has been six years since you left us. Ali has a beautiful playmate now called Lucy and you would have loved her too, she is so cheeky just like our Ali. I still wish you were here, I still miss you lots, I still love you Dad xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Dad, really wish I was answering a phone call from you tonight telling me " what a load of plonkers ". Yes, Liverpool just lost the Europa League Final. Guess I will just have to imagine you saying it but it's not the same as the real thing. Love you always Dad from your Amanda xxx

It has been 2 yrs today since you left and I still struggle without you. I miss you so much every day. I cherish precious memories I have of you. I still feel the pain of you going away. I wish I could see you. I dream of being with you again. Every day I say I love you. I will see you, be with you and tell you I love you when we are together again in heaven. Until then Dad I will miss you & love you always xxx

I went to see a speedway tribute today, you would have loved it Dad, they had all the old bikes some ridden by Briggs, Collins and a few other oldies you would have recognised. There was quite a selection of restored bikes, my favourite was the sunbeam - they had restored it lovely, it was black & gold. Ali is being a cheeky monkey but then she was taught by you, miss & love you lots Dad x

Missing you so much Dad, it is becoming increasingly difficult to concentrate on anything. I am constantly thinking of you knowing you are with Mum & i wish so much to be with you both, to be in a world where the pain is no longer there. Luv u lots Dad xxx

Really lost at the moment Dad, trying so hard to get on with life but feel my life has no worth without you in the world. I miss your calls, nearly everyday I would be saying ”hello dad” & hear your voice, now there is only silence. I even miss you telling me off occasionally about working too hard or being too stubborn but mostly I miss your cheeky smile & laugh, I want to be with you.
Posted by Amanda Grace Simmonds on January 25, 2012
Liverpool won tonight Dad but I don't feel happy about it because your not there calling me to tell me they are lucky. I am trying so hard not to be sad but anything that happens doesn't seem to be of any significance anymore - I know life is going on around me but frequently I do not feel a part of it anymore, it feels like I am trapped living the day you left us over & over again. Luv u
