R.I.P Daddy

In loving memory of my DAD who passed away on August 1st 2010 from throat & lung cancer. He is being laid to rest today, 14th August 2010.

Daddy, I know you're in Heaven, I saw you sail there. How amazing that your crossing would be by the means you loved best! I'm grateful for the time I had with you and for the opportunity to tell you I love you one last time.

Rest in peace, Daddy—my friend, my hero, my dad with the ever-present playful smile and naughty sense of humour. We will all miss you!

Until we meet again, I know you'll be watching over us.

  1. Aw Mon, that's a lovely speech, thinking of you throughout this difficult day and I hope you're okay. Love and hugs Karen xoxo

  2. Lots of love and hugs to you, Mon, on a difficult day. A beautiful message to your father. <3

  3. Monique, your love for your father is so apparent in your writing. Lots of love and support from across the pond coming your way on this most difficult day ahead of you.

  4. Beautiful message, Mon. He'll be so proud of you.

    Big hugs,
    C xxx

  5. Thanks for taking the time to drop by and leave a message, girls!

    I just heard from my mum who said the funeral went brilliantly. She said my tribute and my sister's eulogy had the effect we wanted.

    My dad didn't like misery in any form, and we wanted to bring a light touch with humour in our tributes. It blesses my heart to hear we achieved it!

  6. You & your family are in my thoughts and prayers, Monique. I am sorry to hear of your loss.

  7. Thinking of you and your family Mon during this difficult time


  8. Martha & Lacey,

    Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts!


  9. Monique - I just wanted to say what a lovely tribute to your father. He sounds like a wonderful person and your love for him is very clear.

    I like the wreath it is very similar to the one we had for my father. You are very much in my thoughts right now.

  10. Thank you, Rachel.

    My dad was wonderful and easy-going. I agree, the wreath is lovely. Hope it didn't bring back your dad's passing and made you sad...


  11. I just saw the post for this at Twitter, Monique. My heartfelt condolences to you. My dad and I were very close, too. May God bless you and yours with peace and comfort at this time. You are in my prayers.

  12. Thank you so very much, Joanna! I'm not sure how long ago your dad passed but condolences to you also. May God's peace remain with you, hon.

    Hugs x
