Meet my maker

My Dad

A man who did great things, who built homes, lives, families, people.

A man who showed me how to be, how to live life with thought for others.

A man who showed me what quiet dignity and respect looked like and what those two qualities could achieve.

A man that laughed a lot, that made others laugh in equal measure and always, always could laugh at himself.

A man who showed me that a sharp mind is more powerful than a strong arm.

A man so much greater than this prescribed end.

I was made by my Dad.


  1. He did a good job.......and you are doing a good job for him now....sending good thoughts for all of you x

  2. The love you have for your dad shows in every word. This kind of writing reduces me to helpless floods of tears. You are a huge credit to your parents and I can only hope/wish/pray my son will be like you.

    Much love x

  3. Libby - Thank you.

    AG - Thank you. I just hope your son manages to swear less than I have been doing over the last few weeks.
