My dad was such a strong man, most of his life he fought illness, but it never stopped him from living it, he did so much, from his time in the RAF, to working in South Africa, Sudan & Switzerland in his job as a loom overlooker in the cotton mills, his hobbies, which were potholing in the Yorkshire Dales & volunteering work on the Keighley & Worth Valley railway, where every christmas, he would put on the red suit & go up & down the carriages, dishing out presents & bringing smiles to the faces of so many children, including me, even though I knew it was my dad in there.

He also had a very mischievous side & played pranks on so many people, oh the tales he had to tell & I learn't so much from him & he passed on his knowledge & all those tales to his only grandson, they shared such a special bond that will never be broken, the memories will live on, just has he wanted.

I'm so proud of you dad, you fought the big C has you called it, until the very end & I hope I've inherited that fighting spirit, even though you were never the sort to show your emotions, I knew you loved me & I hope you knew I loved you too, I'm so glad we became close again, I enjoyed our coffees & lunches out, they were very special to me.

Look after my mum for me & all those bowsers, until we meet again.

Sleep tight, your loving daughter Jackie. X
