    Thank you everyone for your lovely words of comfort and support.

    I can see why he liked to come on here so much, everyone is so friendly.

    Ive been looking through all his posts and threads and he didnt shut up about me did he! No wonder you all feel like you know me already.

    I feel closer to him being on here and I found great comfort in seeing a post from him celebrating my birthday from last year as sadly he passed 2 days before my birthday this year.

    I really appreciate everything everyone has said.

    Lauren, having been blessed to "know" your dad from these several forums for some 8 years I sort of feel like we know you too. Your dad was a buddy, a mate and I will miss him. Your dad was in my family's prayers at the dinner table for some time now. His family too.

    We were all better for having Mick in our lives. Thank you for your post. We will be heading to AKL this January and i was supposed to give Mick the skinny on the resort. I will be thinking of you dad and raising a pint in his honor with my brother.

    God bless.

    Lauren... thank you :hug2:

    For coming in here and posting something so special.

    We will miss your dad very much, but I know it cannot even begin to compare to what you are feeling

    Please, make yourself at home, because although you dont know is, we have shared many of your successes and accomplishments through your dad's posts.

    How very nice to meet you :hug2:

    Hi Lauren, its nice to have you with us. I had the pleasure in meeting you and working with you about 7 years ago when you did some modelling for me when I first started my photography business.

    Your dad was a great chap and a pleasure to chat with, we will all miss him terribly. :hug2:

    Lovely to have you here Lauren, hope you drop by often :yes: I know it has been a few years since we all went camping together but your dad kept us all up to date with how well you and brother have been doing, you both made him so proud! Take care and give your mum a hug from me.
    Lots of love Lisa, Colin, Daniel and Caitlin :hug2:

    I've started this post a few times, over the last couple of days.

    What does one say at this time? I will just speak from the heart, from one daughter to another. Many times, our father's are our heroes. While I don't know you personally and never met your father. From what I have gathered over time, I'm going to assume, he was your hero. That person who is always there for us, always willing to protect us, and always, always proud of us.

    I'm sorry that you lost yours way too soon. :hug2:

    Hi Lauren,

    Lovely to meet you, although as others have said, thanks to your Dad we already feel we know you.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss, your Dad was very special to all of us.

    We will be delighted to help you plan your trip, please come back often and visit, we'd love to see you.

    Cheers

    Karen.

    Hi Lauren, i saw this just after you posted but i couldn't think of anything appropriate to post. It seems so long ago that we all went camping, I'm glad you decided to join us, your Dad would have been really pleased. Give my love to your Mum and Mikey from us. Julie, Jon, Daniel and Caitlin xxx :hug2:
