It is with a broken heart and trembling hands that I write this post to say that my amazing father passed away on Wednesday 26th October at 7:55 pm.
After 15 years of defying doctors’ expectations, beating medical odds and spending every day quite literally fighting for his life, all of his suffering is over. And while his death has been a long time coming, we are all in shock and can’t quite believe it. I keep expecting him to call me, and keep adding bits to his weekly grocery shopping list, and I honestly don’t understand how the world is still turning.
I feel so, so, so lucky to have known you – you truly were the most remarkable human being. You taught me everything I know (most invaluably you taught me how to read and write). I am utterly privileged to have had you as a father and am forever proud to be called your daughter. I will miss you with every beat of my heart.
No more pain, Pops. You’re safe now. Thank you for everything. My best friend, my hero, my biggest fan, my world.
I love you Daddy, oodles and oodles, forever and a day.
Rest in paradise xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
