Dad died peacefully at home this morning. He hated overblown gestures. Reality is he hated any kind of fuss and he’d wonder what the fuck I was doing posting about him on an internet forum but you lot are practically family so it kind of makes sense.
There are so many things I could say but I guess the best tribute I can pay him is that he was always there for me no matter what, no matter how many times I messed up. He loved us all without judgement. Without question.
He was Dad. And Granddad. And I’ll really, really miss him….
Sorry to hear your news TB , my thoughts are with you and your family
I shall raise a glass to your Dad this evening Travis. Words are often useless at a time like this, but hold your memories close to you and remember all the good things. He sounds like a wonderful fella. x
Raising a glass to Mr Harding senior this very moment.
Sorry to hear the sad news mate.
So sorry this has happened. All the best.
Sounds like everything a dad should be. Sorry for your loss.
Dont know much about you apart from what I read on here, but if you are a major part of his legacy then he must have been a good Dad.
Very sorry to hear that Travis.
LL and co thinking of you and your family.
Condolences and much sympathy from the house of G. Some people don’t get on with their folks but you and Bickle Snr seem to have had a good relationship. My old fella was ace but died, age 53, when I was only 22. Still miss him.
Cherish and enjoy your memories.
Sorry for your loss . My thoughts are with you .
Oh Travis, so sorry to hear this. Sending you my best wishes.
Very sorry to read this TB.
My sincere condolences.
remember you posting how he loved this and used to march round your house singing along to it
CBIT Just played this very, very loud. A very vivid memory of the silly old bugger in our old dining room, spitting out those words, cu,cu, cu cucumber. Cheers. Happy fucking days.
We know it’s coming but that doesn’t make it any easier when it arrives. I’m sure you have some wonderful memories to bring some comfort and the hurt will lessen with time.
Lovely words Travis,really sorry to hear that.
Glass raised here.
Sorry to hear this. I’d like to echo Cordshoes sentiments. Take care, x.
Sorry to hear your news. All the best
Sorry to hear that, Travis. I’d love to be able to write similar things about my dad. The great inevitable never gets any easier, does it?
Really sorry to hear this.
That’s one hell of a tribute.
A life well lived and then some. We need more people like him to help turn this shit show around. Your dad was a beautiful man. Most people tick over, your dad lived mate.
God bless Mr H.
Hang in their brother, it’s shit now and it will always be shit but it does get easier in time.
