Much loved mate to so many and missed by them all


My dearest angry red headed Dutchman,

You were my rock in every part of my life.  I cannot imagine what my life is going to be like without you to annoy me, argue with me, ignore me and love me so unconditionally.  I have loved every single time you have turned my perfectly structured life upside down with some new adventure that you just had to do.  I have travelled the country, changed jobs, changed cars, bought many motorbikes and met so many amazing people because of your gypsy spirit and I am so grateful for that.  We have created 4 absolute champions of children and they were so so lucky to have you as their Dad.  You will always be the greatest gift I could have given them. 

We loved you then, we love you now and in death we love you still. 
In our hearts you hold a place, no one else will ever fill.
