Lazy Sunday Service

After a long battle with cancer my father died peacefully on Friday evening. It was a tough old day, but he still found ways to make us all smile at the end as well. I'm going to miss him a lot. The video below was made a couple of months ago to help promote the work of Maggies at Clatterbridge. Both Dad and Mum found Maggies to be a wonderful resource and made some good friends there.

My sympathies on your loss.

Condolences, Rob. Lost my old Dad nearly 15 years ago and my Mum, 3 years later. I find myself thinking about them every week and it never ceases to surprise me, just how choked I still get. Anyway, miss your what it takes...feel how you need to it all. Be grateful that he left in peace and cherish those memories...every darned one...
