We are so sorry for the loss of your dad. I know you will find comfort in all the wonderful memories you have, especially all of his funny wee notes he would leave for you and his dad jokes. I’m sure he will continue to watch over his loving family with a bottomless pint of Guinness.
Sending love and hugs during this difficult time.
