    Dad was cremated yesterday. The sun was shining and all the flowers looked lovely. Many relatives and friends came, including staff and resident's relatives from Dad's care home. I never really appreciated the thought that people "live on", although for me this is not in some ethereal place. Dad will be in our hearts, thoughts and words in such a big way that he will always be with us.

    In the card that Dad's niece had sent, she spoke of him "as a lovely happy man with a big smile on his face". This is how we will all remember him.

    Dear daughter

    remember your dad ' with a big happy smile on his face'

    My dad died nearly five years ago from a heart attack. He was 80
    I like to think of him somewhere smoking his pipe, reading the paper
    & watching Leicester City win the F A Cup !
