Harley-David McAndrew 4.7.1983-21.1.2004
Yesterday was all about remembering our eldest son who died on that date. It really was hard to believe that it 5 years now. The pain is as strong now as it was on that day. Losing a child is sooo hard and seems to be getting harder each year and not easier.
His daughter Beth is at the age now where she is realising she doesn't have her Daddy and before Christmas it was difficult for her and we had tears on a couple of occasions. He wrote before he died that he loved her but felt he couldn't be the Daddy she needed. I, on the otherhand, know he could have. He was so wonderful with his siblings when they were young and Beth could only have benefited from that. I can only be thankful that he chose such a brilliant Mum for Beth who is happy to share her with us.
Harley-David we all love you.
