Love Sam xoxo

How can a Light that burned so brightly suddenly burn so pale?  I was just listening to the song Bright Eyes thinking of it's meaning and thinking of you like I always am. I know you've faded from this world and you're still shinning Eternally brightly elsewhere, but I'm still shocked and heartbroken from saying goodbye and miss you so very much, it's hard going into another year without you. But in the Spirit of your strength and tribute to you Dad I'll relive a beautiful memory I have of us two one New Years Eve singing Pink Floyd song together. 

All my Love Eternally Dad xoxoxoxo

  • Ellusive Butterfly
    You might wake up some mornin'
    To the sound of something moving past your window in the wind
    And if you're quick enough to rise
    You'll catch a fleeting glimpse of someone's fading shadow
    Out on the new horizon
    You may see the floating motion of a distant pair of wings
    And if the sleep has left your ears
    You might hear footsteps running through an open meadow

    Don't be concerned, it will not harm you
    It's only me pursuing somethin' I'm not sure of
    Across my dreams with nets of wonder
    I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

    You might have heard my footsteps
    Echo softly in the distance through the canyons of your mind
    I might have even called your name
    As I ran searching after something to believe in
    You might have seen me runnin'
    Through the long-abandoned ruins of the dreams you left behind
    If you remember something there
    That glided past you followed close by heavy breathin'

    Don't be concerned, it will not harm you
    It's only me pursuing somethin' I'm not sure of
    Across my dreams with nets of wonder
    I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

    Across my dreams with nets of wonder
    I chase the bright elusive butterfly of loveWriter/Bob Lind

Dear Dad,
I  still miss you terribly, its been so hard, I still wake and realise its real, that you're not here anymore. I know one thing in life is certain and that is dying. I used to cry as a child thinking of that day, as i grew i would be sad thinking about it and i hoped that by aging the pain would be less, but its not, it feels exactly like I thought it would and nothing is getting any better, its like i have no choice but to live with it.

I wrote a letter to god when i was very young with all our family's names on it saying i want to see them again after they've all passed away then i couldnt find the letter so i like to tell myself god came and took it to show me it when it was my time and to make good with it too, sure i have memories of you that i cherish but the realisation of never seeing you again on earth  is so hard to bare.

I Love you Dearly Dad.
Love always Jenny xxoo

Posted by Jennyxx 06/10/2021

Dad, my computer broke that's why I have not written to you of late, I'm just now learning how to move around the new windows setup. Happy fathers day Dad. I miss you terribly..

Posted by Jenny xxx 05/09/2021

Firstly, thanks for setting the toughness bar so high you bastard. I thought dad was a hard act to follow!!. Seriously mate, you wouldn't believe it, but the amount of times I've thought "what would Chris do" whenever I was in strife doesn't bear thinking about. Most of the times I'd come up short, but that just made the successful attempts sweeter.. I'm so sorry I never got the chance to let you know how many positive things came from being your little brother, but let me sum it like this.. I've bought a Triumph motorbike and every time I ride it I wring its neck as a nod to absent friends.

Posted by Mark 05/09/2021

Thinking of you all day wishing I could ring you and say Happy Father's Day, I can still hear your voice... love you.

Dad, not an hour goes by that I don't think of you, I love and miss you with all of my heart! <3 <3 <3 The only consolation I have living without you is that you always said you had rotten luck, you know we've spent countless hours talking about your luck and sometimes you'd remember some of the incredible luck you had in those talks lol, you'd say Sam next to your luck I'd had pretty bad luck too, you know from 2008 our conversation would have me debating with you about creating reality, karma etc lol xx <3 Well here I am in a world that seems to have gone to hell in a hand basket without you, this has been the most rotten year of my life ! And I can honestly say to you the best years this on this planet were the ones you lived, not much of a consultation but I know you'd agree and I know if anything that would mean something to you, in fact you'd be thinking you've had extraordinary luck now. <3 <3 <3 So Happy Fathers day, just letting you know you had the best sense of humor and the best character and the smartest person of any person I'd ever known and the best years of my life we're the one's spent with you and with you in it!! <3 <3 <3 I love you and will miss you forever more <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 xoxoxoxoxoxo

Posted by Jennifer henwood 26/05/2021

The Day you left...With tears, we saw you suffer as we watched you fade away Our hearts were close to breaking, as you fought so hard to stay, we know you had to leave us, but you never went alone, as part of us went with you, the day you left your home. I miss you dad, We bury mum tomorrow (it's so hard 2 in 2 months) i want to also thank you, I asked for you to find me a car really close to home because my car was playing up, in fact down right defective, it was a test to see if you could hear me so i said ok dad this is the test, but i hadnt taken notice of a car that had been sitting about 1 week after you passed,,i noticed it hadn't moved for about 2months and went to enquire about it(it started to get cobwebs on it) I was told her daughter wasn't selling it but the mother told me she was selling her car, its everything i ever wanted, auto,with manual wind up windows, a toyota, pristine straight, i was so happy its only done 140 000 ks.it was YOU there is no denying this because i asked you,if you can see me show me and it was so close it was literally across the road, thanks dad this was not a coincidence..

Words cannot describe how much i miss you mate, there's not a day that goes by that I dont think about you and what you gave me and mum in life, the night of your passing I turned the TV on and it asked for a code to enter from my phone,-195-195 , you'd always tell me someday ide believe in the universal numbers, a sign from you, whilst I didn't get to say goodbye to you, your memory will always live with me, your fleabite Love ya always

Posted by Levi Murphy 04/05/2021

Dad, I miss you so much, it's not getting easier it's getting harder, I feel empty. I want to be with you. I hope you have got the answers to all the questions about life that we spoke about. I hope the answers are positive. I have a video clip of Beverly hills that I filmed, you're so funny dad, I love you so much, I like to listen to what you say, it cheers me up for a minute, it reminds me of how funny you are. No one's life is perfect that's why we are here, to learn, but what you did with aplomb was emotionally connecting with us. James is always raving about you too, how proud he is to be a Henwood. Like me he also feels blessed just by being a part of you. He was 21 last week (12th April) and now he gets a key to the house. Send Bigboy, nan, nanna madge & Emma my love too they are all still in my heart and memory. I'll finish this off with the same ending that I wrote in a letter to you when I was a child (which is in the blue box) as many grains of sand that there is in 7 mile beach, that is how many hugs and kisses I give to you. love you with all my heart and soul Dad, Love Jennyxxoo

Posted by Samantha Henwood 22/03/2021

Well dad, here we are. I only just realised that I write my first and last words to you with sadness and regret. Here, I will open my heart and share with you the little things that I am most grateful for. You introduced to me my first love, “horses”. They set me free, gave me courage, strength and responsibility. You also had a love for horses and understanding. You taught me how to drive, we went around the block a few times, you said “just keep practising, you’re a natural” and that was it, never judged. I could talk to you about anything, you never grew old, you were a natural story teller. You would say, “If you don’t have anything in life, at least have manners” Once I remove the sadness of a life mostly lived, I realised I will never be able to come to you for help, guidance or wisdom, no more words spoken. Love you dad forever xox

To Dear Dad, Words can not begin to express what I feel but I will give it a try. I have dreaded this day all my life, and now it is here. I know you know but I will remind you again that I loved you so so so so very much. I can still hear your voice and laugh, I still see your face . These memories will never fade . I am so thankful to have you as my father, a father who was kind ,gentle, tough, giving ,compassionate,intelligent,loyal ,courageous,spiritual,funny and wise. You were more than a dad to me , you were a good friend, a confidant, You were truly a diamond in the rough, one in a billion, I feel honoured and blessed to have you as my father. I want to thank you for being you. I have lost more than a father, a father who I loved dearly. I have lost a part of my soul. You told me from a very young age I'd smile at you with big smiles when you looked into the cot at me "that smile" never ceased when i seen you even as I grew into adult hood. I loved seeing you and talking to you for hours on end. I will miss those times so much. This is the hardest test of all. I hope you are at peace and having a great time. Dad you will remain in my heart til I see you again With all my love your daughter Jennyxxoo PS Dad.i would have wrote this sooner but i got the link today.

There was no one in this world who understood me more than my you Dad, and I believe there is no one in this world who understood you more than me! Thank you for being the aware and conscious individual being that you were! <3 I believe with all my heart and soul that you lived your soul purpose; because you only followed your own inner voice and heart! <3 You walked the road least traveled UNWAVERING Bravery, strength, courage, compassion, kindness, loyally, truth and freewill were your convictions and you stood by them right till your last breath! Our discussions about consciousness and the nature of reality far exceeded anyone's ability to comprehend, thanks for leading me towards my own soul realization, I guarantee there isn't many fathers like you and I love you so so very much for being you, I'd never meet another person like you and I know you are an extraordinary special person/soul and it was a gift to have you as my Dad <3 Thank you Dad for your all your love, time, support and for being a devoted father, Thank you for being you and being my Dad <3. Love you forever and always xoxoxoxoxoxox <3 <3 <3
