A True Gentleman

It is eleven years since we lost the kindest, gentlest, funniest man I have ever met...and who I am proud to call Dad
Growing up he never raised his voice or his hand to me or my brother.. and always had a wink for us if we ever got in trouble
He filled our world with laughter.. was an amazing grandfather and was a friend to every one he met
He faced his cancer and stroke head on with bravery and strength..and beat it... but when it returned two years later... he missed my recently deceased mother so much he had no heart to go on
When he died...the church in our little Welsh village was filled to over flowing. A fitting tribute to a real gentleman who was genuinely loved by so many
Love you Dad

Until we meet again

  1. That is a beautiful tribute to your wonderful father. Our Dad has been gone 19 years, and I still miss him.
