this honestly just isn't real yet:( I can't accept and can't believe that your still not here daddy. I don't think I can and will ever be able to accept it, I just know I have to live with it.. not that I want too. we are all missing you such an unbelievable and unreal amount:'( this isn't getting any easier daddy.. if anything it's getting more and more difficult to deal with. I was walking past the cinema the other day and I got a huge flashback of the last time we ever went there, you rang me up and asked me too go with you because you knew I was upset that day and you gave me the biggest hug possible. and toLd me I looked beautiful! I would wish for nothing more then for you to be here with me, with us all. no words will ever be able to describe how much I miss you, I'm honestly struggling to just write this because I think it sounds stupid and it's just not putting across what I want too:( if your up there daddy.. like I would love to believe you are. I hope your having a good time with your mum and I love you soooooooooooooooo much x
buck buck buck..

It is still so hard to conceive that this time last year everything was normal and we were spending the day together, treating you for being the best dad ever to exist. I have been dreading today all week and no words can even begin to explain how I feeling right now. I just want you back. Dad, since as far back as I can remember you were always my best friend as well as father and the person who knew me most! I would give absolutely anything to turn back time and be with you again, annoying you with all my problems, snuggled in your arms. Although you were taken from us far far too young I want you to know that you will always be with me in my heart and soul, in everything I do for as long as I live. Love you more than life itself, with all my heart, Wiggles <3

I could write a million words and it still would not say everything, i remember being 5 years old and mammy brought you home to our family and lay you down on an ironing board for all to see, now i have to watch you leave this world and go hold hands with her in another place. we had good times and we had our arguments but through it all we loved each other and were always there for each other. I'm gonna miss you so so much little brother and i still cant get my head around the fact i will never see you smile again or have a pint together or even just get some of that sound advice you always gave. I will love and miss you as long as i live and then i will hold hands with you again.... say hi to mam for me xxx
