Thanks Dad

Thanks Dad

Yesterday was my father’s funeral - one of the saddest, yet also one of the proudest days of my life.

My father’s childhood was harder than I can ever imagine, yet, through hard work and determination he made damn sure that we would never have to deal with the hardships he did.

He taught me that if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well, and he showed me that a smile and a kind word can brighten someone’s day

He was the very definition of a Good Man - strong, kind and wise - and two pieces of advice he gave me have shaped my life; the first - it’s amazing how far you can get if you carry a piece of paper and look busy - was the foundation of my successful corporate career :-) and the second - ‘I am who I am’ - has given me the strength to leave that world behind and make my own path.

Thanks for everything Dad - I’ll miss you.

    So sorry for your loss…..

    For me, losing my dad was less about missing him physically and more about knowing that he was no longer available for advice and counsel.
