  7. Dad

    Where do I even start?

    I’m still in absolute shock that I am needing to write this and I’m never going to be able to tell or show u how truly great full and proud I am to call you my dad
    All I have now is memories
    memories of all the trip and holidays and great life we shared.

    The very first and last time you smacked me for opening the car door doing 100k on our way to see the penguins.. You made me sit in the car and not join the rest of the kids…You were always a fun loving dad while we were growing up even when we were taken from u we still had were still our dad and that will never change …you still stood up and took us kids on like your own..sleep overs at urs few beers in the shed with Burnie, patsy Richard and the crew…and dancing with you at the Xmas parties when you were working with telecom

    Fishing trips with uncle Neil and Aunty gena at glen Maggie (that’s where you taught me to tie my shoelaces :)) when Jen use to pull on your line under the bank and you would jump ten foot thinking you got a big one.telling James he couldn’t take the carp home to put in the small fish tank omg u broke my brothers heart that day.Our last Xmas in Churchill when you got me my ice cream doll..oh boy that was the best gift ever .I can remember your white food pulling up at 7 am every weekday so mum could take u too work so we could have a car to get to school we would pick u up and always stop into Mary st milk bar and there was never a time that u wouldn’t get us a lollie drink or icy pole.. you would always say u were broke and tell us money didnt grow on trees but u never let us go without, even if we didn’t need it.
    When mum kicked me out of home as a teenager and u opened ur arms and took me in they were good times.the time I cleaned your spare room and lost your good pair of jeans. That was over 25 years ago but oh Man U were still complaining about that not long ago.
    Each time I was pregnant you would save me your flat coke..( that was my craving). You were so proud to become a pa and loved, spoilt and guided all your grandchildren the same way you did with us..They too are going to miss you and we will be proud to continue telling them how much of a perfect dad and pa you really
    All of these are now just memories of a good life you gave us.yes you were a grumpy old man at times and yes u made me cry with some things u said in the past but hey if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be the woman I am today!! Thankyou Dad for helping shape and guide me into who I have become today.
    We took so much for granted dad we thought u would be here forever to guide us through life even just for that little bit longer although you were so scared we still thought u would be ok having this operation.U were always our family back bone you always kept our family together when you could of walked so long ago and so so many times but you stuck around to guide and love us kids…
    I really don’t know what to say dad I’m gutterd, heartbroken totally speechless all I can say dad is I love you forever I love and appreciate you more than myin biological father because u were always there no matter wat and that is exactly wat makes me proud to call u my dad.
    So thankyou for the memories, the good times and laughs.
    Loved but never forgotten Varree and kids xx

I will always be thankful that you were more than JUST DAD. You will always for ever be in our hearts and memories.

    love Jen, Wayne and girls.

  10. Uncle Lindsay
    What a legend of a man. You cared for everyone that was part of your life. You looked out for everyone more than yourself. I’m so proud to call you my Uncle and friend. I loved every time you rang home and always checked in just checking in on everyone before yourself. A fishing trip with you and Uncle Rod meant the world to me. Coming to watch footy Grand Finals and any time I had my name or photo in the paper showed how much you cared.
    We will miss you dearly but you will never be forgotten.
    Lots of love
    Nephew Lee Clarke, Terri, Lola and Allie
