I just said goodbye to my dad.

I told him I love him.

That I miss him.

I thanked him for everything he taught me to be.

And I drank the last of his Drambuie in his honour.

Dad? I miss you. Every day of my life, I miss you. I love you for what you taught me. For the questions you encouraged me to ask. For the answers you encouraged me to find. For being you.

I've never really grieved for you.

I do now.



my father died in 1993, I needed to say goodbye.

To Sho's Dad

I never knew you, but I know your daughter. And I know you'd be proud of the woman she's become. For she is so warm-hearted, talented and strong.

And for that, I thank you. I thank you for raising such a wonderful human being. And I hope you know that she continues to become more wonderful as the days pass.

In memory,
Ash

He raised a lovely, friendly and warm-hearted daughter, so that means he must've been a good person too. *toasts to his memory*
