I don’t normally post anything this personal but I think my Dad would want me to mark this day . I’m conscious he died Holy Week which is quite poignant . I’m not sure if anyone has experience of Cancer, my eyes where opened last year as I watched my father fight for life with every breath in his body against this awful sickness . Cancer crucified him from head to toe and it reminded me of the crucification of Christ on Cross.

I held my fathers hand as he drifted from this life to the next and I hope he is at peace from the pain and suffering he endured so bravely as he fought for life. He died my hero and I’m proud to have been part of his final journey on earth . Love you Dad xxx Drifted into eternity on the 14th of April 2016 xxx

Our Lord and Savior lifted up his voice and said with incomparable majesty: “Let all men know that grace comes after tribulation. Let them know that without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. Let them know that the gifts of grace increase as the struggles increase. Let men take care not to stray and be deceived. This is the only true stairway to paradise, and without the cross they can find no road to climb to heaven.”
