    Apologies that I haven't been around the past while.. especially to my clients on and off here. Sadly my father passed away last week very suddenly. To say my hearts been broken into a million pieces would be an understatement.

    My father was my first best friend, I lived with him all my life even when my parents split I demanded to live with him, i was always a daddy's boy. After a lot of begging on my part (we never had much, I grew up proudly on an Irish council estate) he bought me my very first computer when I was around 12.. that was me hooked, he would have never imagined back then that deed would lead me to where I am today.

    If there is one thing I can say to anyone reading this - cherish your loved ones, it's a common saying but it's so true "you really don't know what's round the corner"

    I'm going to take a few more days to compose myself and then I'll get back to business.. and keep doing him proud. This has been the hardest few days of my life, my little son is helping me through it with his innocent joy and laughter, but man it's so fucking hard..

    So sorry to hear that mate.

    When I was back in the UK last month for a couple of weeks, my mothers health deteriorated to the extent I got her into a hospice. I then spent almost 2 further weeks with her until she passed away, then had the funeral etc to arrange.

    Difficult times but this is when family and friends rally around.

    Sorry for your loss t0mmy. :(

    On the end, all of us have to go at some point. This can be super hard I know, but try to accept it and be thankful for the time you had with your dad. I am sure he was an awesome person and he loved you very much.

    My thoughts are with you man. Respect and my best wishes to you and your family.

    Sorry to hear about your father. Business is important but family must always come first. You're right to take a step back. I wish you well

    My condolences Tommy. It is surely a hard loss, but what's most important your father was proud of you as long as he lived, that is the most wonderful thing that can happen. All the best to you and your family in these sad moments.

    Sorry to hear that. Stay strong mate.

    I lost my father few months ago and I am still trying to find the way to go on with my life, but it is hard...

    There is time for everything in life, time for sadness and time for joy. Stay strong, take your time, but try to keep your self occupied. It will help you to get over easier.
