This morning at 5 a.m my wonderful dad slipped peacefully away aged 74, at home with my mum and myself at his bedside. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's a little over 10 years ago, and dementia just over 5 years ago.
He still had all his faculties and could still hold a conversation with you and also have a laugh and joke. He never let either illness get in his way. And it was only in the last 12 months after several falls, a trait of the Parkinson's, that knocked his confidence, so much so he would only go out if my mum was with him. I also had a few memorable trips out in my car with him in the last 4 months, driving him round places he once lived, or worked, and places of interest to him in and around Widnes.
He loved Westerns, War films and documentaries about anything War related. He had lost his own dad in Feb 1945 whilst fighting the Japanese in Burma. One regret he had was never getting to visit his War Grave, although we did trace the cemetery, and we're able to purchase a photo of his headstone.
He taught me everything about D.I.Y that I would ever need to know, which has saved me a small fortune over the years, and always drummed into myself and younger brother and sister, to work hard, never lie, and never steal. All of which we have adhered to.
He will be sadly missed, but never, ever forgotten by all those that knew him. See you again one day dad.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Easy to feel the love that you had through your writing. After the initial pain, the memories will brighten your days. Sounds like a great man and Father who battled a very hard fight.

Sorry for your loss. It sounds like he lived a full life and left a big part of himself in you, in that way he lives on, in all the lives that you touch.
