‘To my brother, my best friend, to my dad, I love you so much. I don’t think anything is ever going to fill the void you have left in my heart,’ he began. 

‘Sitting at the poker table, walking around the golf course, watching the Saints and eating pizza is never going to be the same but I know all you ever wanted for me is to be happy, no matter what. So, that’s what I’m going to do, try and be happy. 

‘Every day you told me how proud you were of me and I promise to try and keep making you proud. I am going to miss you so much Dad, I wish I could look you in the eyes one more time and give you one more hug… I love you so much Dad, see you soon.’
