Dad, this was one of the proudest moments of my life when you walked me down the aisle at my wedding. You looked so smart and happy, probably because you was giving me away 😂🤣 but this precious memory will always have a special place in my heart ❤️KimX

Dad I have so many special memories of you. You was such a brilliant dad. You brought us up to respect people and always put us right when we were cheeky and we always listened to you. When we moaned we had a loose tooth you would say you was going to tie it to the door and shut it, we soon stopped moaning and got it out.
You and mom always made sure we had a holiday, I don’t know how you did it with us all sometimes taking nan, the dogs and our friends. Not sure how we all got in the car but we always had a laugh and lots of fun together with Len’s family. We always had mushy peas, cockles or crab sticks at the seaside which we all looked forward to.

I remember you used to take us to the fish market in the Bull Ring and buy us a plate of cockles, you would have muscles and then take a bag of them home, we felt so spoilt then.

I remember you used to take me to Petes fish shop down the Meadway every Friday as it was chip shop food night then and you would joke with Pete that I could live there and I always came away with a free roe or scollop.

When you, mom, Len, Cathy and me went on holiday, you three would go off to the club and let me and Cathy go off to do what we want but if it got to a certain time you would come looking for us and we would hide and try and run back to the chalet before you got there. Len would shout Catherine but you couldn’t shout my name angrily as it is just Kim. You would punish us with putting toilet rolls in our bed or play tricks on us but the next day we would just carry on having a great time. Loved those holidays.

The proudest moment was when you took my hand and walked me down the aisle on my wedding day and that will stay with me forever.

I love and miss you dad and these are just some of the special memories I have of you. I have too many to write down but they will always be with me forever.
Thank you for being the bestest dad a daughter could ever wish for.
Love you always
Kim

I have so many happy memories of you dad and I love and miss you so much. You must have been in pain for a while but you didn’t tell us, I wish you would have but I know you don’t like hospitals. When you slipped away it broke my heart but when I saw you lying there at the funeral home you looked so peaceful and yourself and not in pain anymore. You looked smart ready for a pint with Len (Laurel and Hardy reunited) in the angel pub like you both used to. We will look after mom and Millie who misses you loads. Can’t believe you went so quick. I love and miss you so much Dad. Forever in my heart, all my love always Kim xxx
