R.I.P Dad


R.I.P Dad... Today my father Alan passed away in his sleep... 

 It is a difficult time for my Mother and us right now but not unexpected....

 All we can do is take comfort in the fact that Dad got to have Christmas, his 81st Birthday and was happy and pain free at the end...

 Mum and Dad have been together since the ripe old age of 17 and Dad was shipped out to the Suez Crisis on his 18 birthday... Dad went on to serve in various war zones including Kuwait, Aden and Cyprus... 

 Although when posted in France he and Mum found enough time to conceive me I was actually 3 before I really remember meeting my Dad and I remember the toy tank and yellow baseball cap with my initials CAP on the brim... 

 What can I say... my Dad, my Hero and he like many others fought for what we have today....

 Be safe Dad I miss you already xx
