On Wednesday evening, at about 22:40 GMT my dad moved onto his next great adventure.  I hope wherever he is, he is free of pain, walking so fast that people have to trot to keep up and doing it all with a big smile.

My dad, the person who made me who I am today.  The gentle giant.  Bootface.  Completer of the Telegraph cryptic crossword on a daily basis.  Intelligent, funny and with the biggest heart.  He would do anything for anyone (if he could).

Right now I can’t really find the words to say how great he was to me.  I just know that one of the brightest lights in my life has flickered and gone.

Good night dad.  Sleep well.  You will be missed.
