One Year Ago

(Photo taken in 2008, at my Bachelor's Degree graduation)

One year ago today, at 6:52am, my dad left this world after a short battle with cancer. My mum was by his side as he took his last breath, while I never had the chance to say goodbye.
For many reasons this has been the hardest year of my life, so I want to say, while I have the chance, how much I value each and every one of you who have stood by me during this time. Life is short, and it can end so suddenly. So if you love someone, tell them. If you need someone, tell them. Don't waste time. Don't have regrets. We have once chance at this.

I love you Dad, and I miss you more than anything.


  1. Cannot imagine what you have been through in the past year. My dad is my hero and I dread the day that he leaves me through death.

    I adore this photo, by the way. I can tell you two were kindred spirits of the sort that goes beyond mere blood ties. :)

    1. Thanks Angela, this really means a lot.

  2. I do not know how or why I missed this blog when you posted it over a week ago but I have seen it now!

    Just like the day that I seen it on your FB, it has filled me with such overwhelming emotion! I know that you have had a hard year but I am sure that none of us know the true depth of that struggle.

    I love this photo of you both. Definitely look so much like him. Beautiful way to remember him on the toughest of days!

    love xx

    1. Thanks Gem. Yeah, everyone says I look like him. Something to be proud of =) x
