Thanks for your thoughts about my dad. I've never met a person more deserving of a miracle than him. I have never heard him speak ill of another
person nor anyone speak badly of him. He has a smile for everyone he meets and was always willing to help someone even total strangers. There isn't a
dog in the world he cannot befriend either (I kid you not).
I'm curious about the salute from your grand dad. Was he in the service? Do you know anything about what he did there?
You are very welcome. Your father sounds like a lovely man.
My Grandad was a special and amazing man (a gentleman) he was one of the "old school" taking pride in his appearance - never going out without
looking smart well shaven and dressed in a shirt and tie.
He was always respect of others. His family were extremely important to him and he had this incredible way when he spoke to anyone of making them feel
He was a great storyteller and had so many stories to tell.
My Grandad did national service just after the war and was art of the Royal Engineers and also worked for the Royal Corps of Commissioners
The salute is something we did together when I filmed him
He loved his life and would enjoy spending time with the family watching his favourite sports on television or maybe even a horror film or two!
He was a bit of a joker and a cheeky chap but always respectful and always polite. It is sad not having him around I miss him everyday he was like my
