For you dad

Missing dad so much, I decided a while back to look into a memorial bench. Well it has all finally come together lovely.

It is to be in Porthcawl where we always used to go when I was little as a family and all my life really. It was the place where mam and dad would have moved to had they had the finances and we have so many precious memories it was the most fitting place. It is going right on the seafront where we used to go too and spend many days playing on the beach.

Hope you like it dad xxxxxxxxxx

  • A lovely gesture your father would be so pleased. My family did the same when my brother died and whenever we could we would go and sit on it and dream and talk about him. I hope you will get the same comfort


  • I think a bench in memory of a loved one is the best thing to do - with a favourite view. I have been glad to use them when the weather is good.

  • I'm sure your Dad will indeed like it. Wonderful memorial.

    With love
