This tragic event was 20 years ago tomorrow (16/05) and Ian erickson was my Dad
I’m now 34 and still struggle with this everyday that the selfish acts of people based on losing Small Hirt term profits caused me to lose my dad
for a lifetime.
He was due to come travel north and head home to me and my brother that day to watch the FA cup final with us that day but sadly it never happened.
The unforgivable acts of, and I’m not going to hold back, absolute bastards, robbed me of the chance to have my first pint with him, be taught to
shave, fatherly advice trough my young adult years and more. No amount of lost money can justify the pain I have felt for 20 years now.
I wish I could have 5 minutes with the people at fault, who i believe knew there was a chance they were sending them to their deaths. I’m not even
angry on a physical level where I want to beat them up or anything, I’d just like the opportunity to let them know exactly what they’ve taken away
for me and my brother and mam.
I’m very fortunate as my mam has been amazing throughout and although I know this post doesn’t fix anything I’ve checked the internet around
this time of year every year and never had it in me to comment so here we are x
