If I nly had five minutes the night you passed away, id give you one last hug so tight to see your great big smile.
I'd tell you that I don't think I could live without you,
Not even for a while.
I'd kiss your cheek and take your hand and tell you its ok to goand I'd tell you that I'll miss you more than you'll ever know.
But you were gone so quickly, and before you even knew it you were standing at heavens gate.
So wait for me in heaven dad, dont let me come alone.
The day the angels come for me, please be there to bring me home.
R.I.P DAD
Love and miss you forever X

Grandad I Miss You
I know it hurt you
It hurt me too,
But now that you're gone
All I know is I miss you
You were there for so long,
I never thought you would leaveI though you had another year Waiting up your sleeve
The day that you left
Was the saddest of my life
I remember sitting at home
And crying all day and night
I might be selfish
But I wish you were here
Or if you stayed
For one more year
I know you loved me
And I still love you too
So I'm trying to be strong
Just for you I know I'm not perfect I know I'll never be.
I just hope you're up there
And that you're proud of me.
You had to let go
Even though you were holding on for so long
But there's not a day I don't think of you,
And how you were so strong
I just want to tell you
That you're always in my heart.
Even though I still cry
I know we're not apart.
Thinking of you Grandad
Love Simone xxxxx

I don't really know what to say, how can you put into words of how much you miss someone so much and just wish that everyday that you should still be here with us. I really miss seeing your funny faces, funny jokes telling me of for leaving my cup in the living room in the morning and not warming your morning paper up for you which I'm sorry I never did, I've never met someone so kind and thoughtful and really strong as you, Your one of a kind. You wil always be in my heart and memories. R.I.P Bob x

Life will never be the same with out you It hurts to think that you are not here any more. But I can’t help but smile with tears in my eyes to think of how we cherished each and every moment of our lives together when you were alive. Like an angel, now you are watching down on me from the heavens above. But for me, you have always been the angel in my life. I miss you dad and love you so much.

Love Darren xx

Dad,
I'm finding it hard to believe that your gone but I'm so proud of the way you battled through your illness with such bravery.Every time I came to see you the sadness I felt faded instantly when I saw that cheeky smile and your sense of humour never failed to make me laugh. You might be gone but you will always be in my thoughts And the memory's you left me will never be forgotten.
I love you dad.

Dad each moment we remind ourselves you have gone and we still cannot believe it. What a journey these last few months have been from your late diagnosis to your untimely death. You were full of life, not ready to end the battle yet, but we, your Son, Daughter In Law and grandchildren find solace in the fact that you are no longer suffering. You are free now, not tied to the laws of humanity, you are around us and give us comfort in your own way. You knew the last time we met there was going to be no more exchange of words and you left us all with a witty one liner. You may be gone physically, but your words will always live on as our fond memories of the legend you still are DOM. Love you, it was and still is a pleasure to be part of you in this world. Until the next. Love Terry Manjit and kids Xx
