Until dads stroke he was very active, spending a lot of time in his garden, growing all his vegetables on his allotment. Dad shared his produce with the family and neighbours who are now repaying his kindness by looking after his garden and allotment while he is ill. He was heart broken when my mum died 2 years ago, but never complained he just got on with life the best he could.
Thoughout his life he has also shared my love of the simple life by making things from nothing. I still have my dolls cot and rocking horse he made nearly 60 years ago. My grandchildren now enjoy playing with these when they visit. I consider myself lucky that i still have my dad. He is my best friend. ...........
Love you dad xxxxxxxxxxx
This is me with my lovely dad. The photo was taken on the London Eye. Dad enjoyed his first ever ride on the Eye.
