I Miss You

Here I go again.....I have been a very emotional blogger for the last couple of weeks and perhaps it is all down to tomorrows date. The 9th March, exactly a week before my own birthday, was my Dad's birthday.

8 years ago my never-been-sick-before darling dad found out he had the dreaded 'C' in his bladder. Surely it would be benign or just need simple surgery to remove it and he would be OK. Sadly, this was not the case and it was diagnosed as a very aggresive Cancer. Six years ago he lost the battle.

This year he would have been celebrating his 80th birthday and I still miss him dearly.

Me and my Dad (circa 1966)



  1. It is very understandable that you still miss your dear Dad , I am sure everyday something will remind you of something he said or did , it is great we do have the memories . Hugs Sheila

  2. So sorry for your loss. I lost my mom to cancer in 1986 when she was only 65 yrs old. There's hardly a day that goes by that I don't think about her. I hope you have some wonderful memories to sustain you.

    Oh Sweetie, I can relate to you. My dad will be 85 on the 18th March, same day as my birthday. Even though he is still alive, he is not doing well. Last year he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins and has been regressing ever since. Dad has to be spoon fed, bathed and has lost his memory. The part that is the hardest for me is my memory of him, as this 'strong-figure' person who would do anything for his children. That memory is so vivid and when I see him as he is today, it is sad and fighting back the tears is a challenge.
    I hope your dad didn't suffer too much. Hang on to those wonderful memories of him.... they are precious!
    Hugs, Sue from Cyprus x x x

  4. You know sometimes we have fun things to blog about...and sometimes, not so fun. I lost both my parents at a fairly young age...I know what it is to miss them....Hope you find some joy this weekend!

  5. I lost my dad on the 10th of March 28 years ago. So yesterday I thought about him all day. I truly believe it's important to remember them forever because no-one ever fills the gap they leave. Thinking of you... x
