    My lovely father lost his fight yesterday.

    I am heartbroken that I will never hear his voice, see his smile or feel his hugs again but am glad that he is now at rest and in peace.

    He spent the last 3 years of his life living with me. We had good times and bad, tears and laughter and trials and tribulations but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I told him as often as I could how much I loved him and I hope and pray that even in his poor confused mind he knew it.

    I would like to thank all you lovely people who offered help and advice when I needed it most. You'll never know how much I appreciated it. And I wish you all strength in your ongoing journey with your loved ones.

    But for now, goodnight dad. I will miss you and love you forever and a day. You were my best friend and my world. Sleep tight xx

    I'm sure that he knew how much you did for him. I'm sure also you will eventually have some lovely memories of your times together to look back on.

    Wishing you strength for the days and weeks to come.
