Pop's passing has left part of us missing ... and I feel especially for Grandma who has lost her lifelong partner and friend. I wish there were words to console her at this time ... but there are none. I wish there were words to comfort my mother Julie... their oldest child ... and my father who considered George a great friend ... and my brothers ... all my aunts and uncles and cousins ... and pop's friends. But there none. There are no words to take away our grief, but there is joy in pop's memory and in all the things he did for so many people over so many years.
I had the privilege of growing up and seeing all of my grandparents regularly ... including Pop Dorrough who was always working on projects through the Tweed Valley. I always admired his energy and his passion to do everything to the best of his ability. He was always there to help family in tough times and in good ... I can think of many ways he helped family, friends and strangers alike ... and I know there will be countless others he helped in some way through the years too.
Pop left the world a far better place because he cared for others ... and giving 100% always. And he was a bloody hard worker! To me he was a patient, gentle, 'tough as nails' man who let his actions speak for him. He will be missed. RIP Pop. You are now at peace with the angels. May the Lord bless you and keep you in eternal peace.
