Hi Jacqui
Lovely words and so touching. I am sure he will be very proud of you, your resilience and your determination to try and make something positive out of such a terrible experience. I am sure you will remember all he has taught you over the years (and which implement to use!) and continue his traditions and his love of farming.
Take care and keep strong and we will continue to think of you and send love.
Deb

Paul, Petra, Deb, thankyou,
Reading everyones experiences of PC reminds me that life goes on, however much it feels like it won't.
Never realised how much of my day I spent with dad and now its thumb twiddling time.
So, if it stays sunny I'll do some more planting, with no discussions about which seed to use.
And we'll use whatever looks likely,
We shall learn by our mistakes, like mum and dad did when they first started.
Like my grandparents and my great grandparents before them.
We can but try.
Thankyou all again for the hope, Jacqui xP.S.
Sadly my oldest, dearest friend who was in hospital at the same time as dad with cancer, who fought for life and the chance to go home, passed away quietly on Mothering sunday evening at home with her family.
