“Words just can’t explain my love for my Daddy, He was a warrior through his illness and today I tried to find myself again by taking on a massive challenge as I’ve literally been lost and broken hearted, Well on a freezing cold mountain top I felt warm and loved I felt he carried me up and hugged me at the top it was surreal and emotional but Calm and beautiful.
