It’s been 12 years today since my bear hugs were taken away… There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to capture how greatly you are missed. But on this day I’d like to remind you of how much you are loved…
Dad, I love you because…
…you would walk us around on your feet as little girls.
…you would shine a spotlight on us as we danced around the living room.
…you never complained about your stroke or your epilepsy, even though the seizures frightened you.
…you made us smile and laugh daily with your unpredictable humour.
…you were the most selfless human being I’ve ever met and would spend your last £5 on chocolate raisins, Beano magazines and Matchbox cars for us.
…you lived with 3 feisty females and never lashed out physically or verbally once – you’d always walk away when angry.
…you gave the best bear hugs ever.
…you cared and worried about our safety.
…you surprised us with cups of teas and Garfield The Cat inspired butties in the mornings and always made them with a smile.
…you weren’t afraid to show your emotions.
Because of a million other reasons I never had the chance to say to you – but mostly, because you’re my Dad…
My love for you is infinitely endless. I love and miss you so so much. Thank you for being my guide.
Loving you always – forgetting you never 💙 xx
