  1. Dad, we write this with a heavy heart. You were strong till the end and showed true dignity making sure you told each and every one of us that you loved us. Your family, especially your grandchildren were your world! We will always hold fond memories of the family values you instilled in us with an upbringing where you worked hard to provide an abundance of food and drink for Mum to prepare and share at the table. You had and will always have a heart of gold.
    You loved Inverloch and the Pier was your favourite hangout.
    We promise we will always shut the gate and look after Mum as you did.
    May you rest in peace, till we meet again ❤❤❤❤❤❤
