Tribute

Dad was a wonderful father, grandfather and friend. To me he was the smartest man in the world. When I needed advice I know that I could call on him. He always made sense of things. He loved spending time with his ganddaughters. Even after Alzheimer’s disease had ravaged his mind, he still found a way to smile. His smile was always a beacon of light to those around him.

Dad's struggle with Alzheimer’s disease has come to an end and he is in a better place now. I know that he would not want us to be sad for him. He would want us to think of him in better times.

We thank you for all of the support and kindness you’ve shown over the years.

Bye for now... Dad
