Sunday 6 November 2011: Father
This is my Dad. He was a great bloke. He was a Congregational Minister who spent his life doing good works for the poor and disadvantaged in Birmimgham. He was hugely Charismatic and could charm his way into anywhere if it helped him get what he needed for the charity. He was killed with his dog Ben in a Motorway pile up 21 years ago today. Looking at the press coverage of the recent crash on the M5 (a road we had travelled recently to and frpom our holiday) brought bact a lot of painful memories but also a lot of good ones. I still miss him and regret that he never got to meet my children, his grandchildren.
It's sunny today so smile.
