Today would have been your 74th birthday.

Seventy four.


You’d of said you didn’t want any fuss but secretly, we’d know you want some.

Not necessarily from friends and family, but from us – Mum and me – and you’d of got it because you were our everything.

But we can’t spoil you today, at least not in terms of cards and presents and hugs.

So we will bathe you in our thoughts and love, because even though you’re no longer here, you’ll always be here.

In our hearts and minds.

Feelings and thoughts.

Happy birthday my dear Dad, I wish you were here to spoil.

You’ve only written this to make everyone be nice to you. But it’s sweet and your dad sounded cool so it’s all good.

If my kids love Mary and me half as much as you love your parents, we will be very lucky. This is very sweet post Robert. I hope you and your Mum do OK today.

it goes without saying, so did i.

oi campbell. note the distinct lack of swearing. i wouldnt do that for anyone and im not doing it for you. its for mr and mrs c all the way.

ps. bastard is not a swear word in my book so dont start getting picky.
