  • Hi Dad,
    Just a thank you for all you did for me growing up. The education and the help and encouragement certainly helped to make me what I am today.
    I know that you and Mum often went without so we could have what we needed.

    Thanks Dad. I try to think of you every day.
    Public - Miles Henry - Child - 14 March 2018
