I am proud to be his daughter and feel that his life made significant contributions to the world we live in.
The order of service.
A poem read at the service. I remember my father when he was seriously ill in hospital (6 years before his death), a pretty nurse smiled at him and despite his condition he gave her a beaming smile in return. A smile can pass on happiness to those around us and costs nothing!
I gave the eulogy, it contains information spanning his life.
I hope that your memories of my father are as happy as mine.
