It has been so long since:

  • I reached for my mobile on a Monday morning to discuss with you the latest episode of whatever series we were both watching at the time.
  • You took my girls out on your boat for a ride on that lake you loved so much.
  • We had a heated argument, followed by sitting down together to sort it out, ending the conversation with a hug.
  • You called me “ma grande”.
  • You stood on the balcony at the chalet, your face breaking into a smile as our car pulled up in the driveway.


Dads -It Has Been So Long


When you passed away I lost the only person who could completely understand how I feel and how I function. We were so alike.

And perhaps the saddest part is that I will never get the chance to say goodbye to you.
