Hello Lisa

Try not to be upset sweetheart Dads done so well and I know its sad but its not fair that he has to carry on in the body that he's in x
I think back to when it was the final stages for my Mum, I looked at her and I knew she would be soooo pi**ed because her hair wasn't done or her lippy wasn't on like she always had it. She was beautiful before HD ravaged her tiny body. When she left me I smiled as I knew it was for the better, she needed to be free of the shackles of HD that had grounded her for over 20 years.
Think about all the amazing stuff Dad has done in his life, all the laughs you had the silliness and most of all the love, then stroke his face and smile for him as he will see your smiling eyes and feel content I'm sure.
