my dad passed in july 2006,and since losing Jayne ive realised how much
having Jayne with me was a massive safety net and a comfort blanket which supported me when losing my im missing him and Jayne .

me mum dad
not a very clear picture.was taken in 1983 I was 18 years old.withmy mum and dad
my sister Samantha is in the far bottom left,and she was a bit of a tomboy she was 6/7 years old in this picture not sure why my brother David isnt in the picture ,the other 2 the kids of the family my dad and mum befriended.was the last holiday I went away with my been to a friends birthday party Friday night,i didn’t get in till about 8am and we were driving to Inglemells a resort not to far from Skegness and Mablethorpe.i was not to well ,my own fault for drinking way to much.well we were about 30 minutes away from getting there and I was feeling sick needless to say yes I was and dad pulled over had take my jeans off and put them in a plastic bag.,dad wasn’t to happy to say the least.but had an ok week and played in 2 park comps.pool and table tennis.lost in the final of both.i hadn’t picked up a table tennis bat since I was 15 years old my attacking shots were nigh on zero had to defend and make them make mistakes lol but all in all was okayish lol.may seem very strange but then again maybe not but since losing my baby Jayne ,I seem be thinking more of Samantha and my dad not that they weren’t always in the back of my mind but now in looking back rather than to any future seems vivid memories of them both are flooding back and at times adding to my frail emotions.

your in my thoughts Samantha,would of been your 44th birthday today.
its hard to believe it was 35 years ago we lost you.hope your looking after Dad and Jayne.
love ian xxx

just put a little im memory article in the local paper as would of been Samantha birthday today.since my dad passed Jayne and me had always put something in the paper 2 times a year no real times just random,this is first time ive done it with just being from me.

remember this song was used in the back ground when bbc did a highlights of the barcelona olympics,Jayne and i loved watching,was the one were derek redmond tore his hamstring,and his dad came on the track and he completed the event.was a real tear jerker watching this happen.

Happy Birthday ! Dad.
every weds from about 1999 to 2005 every weds we would play snooker for a few hours.
