I saw these words today and thought they were perfect to share after going to the most beautiful send off for an absolute legend of a guy Dan Thorley you will be missed so much it's untrue.

Thankyou for all the laughs and chuckles we have had over the years ... so grateful to have known you nearly 21 years and will treasure those memories.

To Julia, Kate, Matthew and Rorrie ... your strength today was amazing and the love you have for each other shone brighter than ever. We love you all to bits and will always be here for you. Dan was ultimately the proudest husband and dad and he had every reason to be, you guys will carry on his legacy with all the amazing memories you made.

My favourite memory has to be Dan performing the song he wrote at Kate and Rorrie's wedding #prouddad ... had to share these pictures too ❤

Dear Julia, Kate and Matthew, I’m so sorry for your loss
I have such fond memories of working with Dan and will never forget his many wise words, his sharp wit and fantastic humour. He had such a fantastic way of telling a story, usually some hysterical set of circumstances, that could only happen to Dan.
He will be so missed.
All my love Nicola x
