Notes to my DadMy father fell ill April 2013 and passed away on Father's Day 2013. I still have so much I didn't get to say to him. I created this blog to help me cope with his death by recording all the things I wish I could have said to him. Never take your family for granted. Never stay mad over silly things. One day they will be gone and wishing you had done things differently is the worst feeling.
April 2015 my stepdad, Kenny, contracted pneumonia, in August he passed away. In two years time I've lost both of my dads. I was so lucky to have to wonderful fathers.
