I want you to meet...

My Dad!

: {with the help of mum} gave me life!
: cuddled and nurtured me
:  encouraged my first steps
:  tickled me to death
:  tucked me in at night
:  showed me the right paths
:  guided me through teenage life
:  cut the strings when I turned 18
:  taught me to have an open mind
:  gave me away at my wedding
:  held, and nurtured, my first born, and second and third born
:  always had the right words
:  always had a hand to hold
: always had a "blossoming" money tree!
:  a storyteller
: had a knack of the early morning wake up call!
: a stickler for doing it the right way
: a proper gentleman
: a right softie
: a charmer too
: he was the hug everyone needed
: FULL of love

These are just some of the things I think of when I think of Dad......
There are SO MANY more things but I will be here until infinity listing them

Dad is struggling with life right he is not going to win
I will MISS him and I will ALWAYS love him
{in the words of Buzz Lightyear}

to infinity and beyond!!

  2. I am so sorry to hear such sad news...I know what you are going through. I am glad you will always carry with you wonderful memories and the love of a wonderful Dad.

  3. Have a big lump in my throat after reading your post, it was just beautiful. I am not going to say anything other than my thoughts are with you and am sending you just the biggest cuddle hun, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. What a beautiful tribute....I enjoyed reading each and every line and it was so apparent to me that your Dad is a wonderful man and that you love him so much. My heart goes out to you - will keep you in my prayers.

  6. crikey - am in tears here, many hugs to you and yours.

  7. Oh, three quarters of the way down...I was so jealous of your dad. Of YOU.
    (I lost my Dad in '93)
    I am so sorry for your pain. SO very sorry.
    Love to you and your family, Suz,
    Deep breathes. Feel the love surrounding you.

  8. There is nothing like the connection between a dad and his little girl. What wonderful memories you have.

    My heart goes out to you. My dad was just out for a visit (I live in the UK he lives in the US) it broke my heart saying goodbye.

    You are both on the minds of many now. All I can say is I am sorry for the pain you are all going through now.

  9. Hi there. I meandered over to this post. I'm assuming that your dad may have passed - so, so sorry. I lost my mom just this January and it is so difficult. What a beautiful post.

  10. XOXO Big Hugs - I didn't grow up with my Dad but now can't imagine not having that connection.

  11. Your Dad sounds like my Dad (I love mine to pieces!). So sorry to hear he's fighting for his life. :(
    You will have so many beautiful memories to last a lifetime! Go bless you, Sue!! <3

  12. And so sorry, I just realised this was an old post... may your memories of him live on in your heart! :)
