Dad, you were the strongest person I've known, right until the end. You worked hard your whole life and were an amazing man, well known for your fabulous sense of humour. We will never forget what we learnt from you and are grateful for your guidance and wisdom. You have left us with a lifetime of precious memories that we will cherish forever.
Your love of food will live on through the generations thanks to your recipes and the dinners we shared.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had you in our lives.
I will always love you and respect you. Thank you for being a wonderful Father.
Rest peacefully now Dad, you will always be in our hearts.
Love Larissa, John, Kieran, Allegra and Charlie.
