Check Shirt


I have chosen my dad’s favourite top. It is red and white chequered. It is made from soft fabric. My dad passed away, but before it happened he gave it to me and he told me to keep it safe because it meant the world to him.

This is very touching. I have a pair of my dad's flannel pajamas that I collected from the hospital after he died. I had been washing them for him while he was ill and visited him each day on the way to work. I treasure that time and those PJs mean the world to me.
