One of my favourite sayings is “to get where you’re going…you have to first go backwards”. Big thanks (and respect) to your mum and the Pete’s allowing so many of us to be able to help you hear and see what that history is.
I’m not convinced Facebook will actually outlive the memory of your dad…but hope each time you need to move forward you can come back to these memories….whether you be 10, 15, 25, 45 or 85 years old….and within them you’ll find your dad’s guiding hand.
My leading memory of your dad centres around a Frankie Valli and the Four seasons tune…ask your ‘uncle’ Pete Northing to show you the actions….particularly the ‘double’ claps. Sums up your dad…double energy, double trouble and double fun.
In my prayers
