I have written before on this blog about my Dad, about his influence on me and my sister and whether he knew it or not on most of the people he met. I could go on for pages about the sort of guy he was but for the moment I will re frame or I will end up crying all over my Mums laptop!

Our wonderfully Dad died on the 27th of December 2009 aged just 60.

To say we are all heartbroken is an understatement, he will leave a huge hole in our little family that will never be filled.

Bye Dad, we will miss you forever.... I just hope they have Wi-Fi in Heaven.

Dear Kat, my deepest condolences to you and your family. Having lost both my parents, my mother just a few years ago, I know just what you are going through. Your dad will live on in spirit through all the wonderful memories you all share of him. Take care. x

Oh Kat, I am so so sorry to read this. All I can say is that you'll be OK, you'll get through this, you'll adjust and although things will be different, you will be happy and carefree again.

When my Nannie died in 2008, this poem helped me a lot and made me feel as though we really will all be together again, that they're really not as far away as we feel at first, and that this is a part of a bigger journey :

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, but not for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that once we shared
Miss me, but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the master plan
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.
