So sorry to hear of your loss. Your dad was obviously an amazing person! From looking at your wonderful blog, it’s easy to see what a great influence he was. I loved the story about him putting a bull in the back of his van! It could catch on! Thanks too for posting about my new blog about the lives of the people who come to our London food bank in need of help.
