Happy Easter Dad, I had a quiet Easter, my girls were working most of the Easter weekend, so I played chaperone to one of them. Michael spent the day with his family, his Dad is very sick, still going along somehow but he's a strong man, he surprises me with his strength, but I find it hard being around him...kinda stirs at my heart stings seeing him this way.

Sadly, Uncle Glen had a massive heart attack early hours of this morning. He's in an induced coma at the moment. We all hope he'll be okay. Steve broke his collar bone yesterday..he'll be fine though with some rest.

You will be disappointed to know that the Broncos are playing terrible..hehe I don't go for them generally as you know. I'm also coming first at works tipping comp..lol pretty good for me seems I don't know too much about footy...but I'm learning.

Miss having a chat with you Dad, but it's good chatting to you here. Chat again soon Dad.

Love you dearly,
Sharon xo

Hi Dad, my best friend shared this poem with me and I wanted to share it with you. It's a beautiful poem and I know you will appreciate it as much as I do.
It's two years today since your passing Dad and you are so dearly missed. This poem says it all:-

Time slips by and life goes on, but from our hearts you're never gone.

We think about you always, we talk about you too.

We have so many memories, but we wish we still had you.

On Sunday (29th April) it was Nan's 90th Birthday. We travelled to spend the day with her and got some lovely photos. Nan said to me, "I wish Martin was still here to share this day".

We all had a lovely time Dad and so did Nan.

Love Always,
Sharon Migheli and Family
xoxo

Hi Dad, I miss talking to you, especially at Christmas, but I did make a dessert that you like to make, the "Choc Ripple Log Cake" and it was a hit with the family and I know you would have enjoyed it too. I still have my doll that you and Mum gave me when I was 8, bet you didn't know I still had that in a safe place. Thinking of you as always Dad and I had a coffee with you the other day at table no. 17. I love those days together when I can reflect on our happy days. Love you Dad, your daughter Sharon Migheli xoxo

I will always miss you Dad. I'm glad the wonderful memories of our time together are still strong. I look at the photos of us together and reminisce about the special bond we had. On my Wedding Day, I still remember the smile you gave me and the kind words you said to me. I can still see your face, hear your voice and your laugh. You will always be in my heart Dad. Love your daughter Sharon Migheli xo
