This day will forever burn in my heart for as long as I live. It was exactly one year ago today that I had to make the hardest decision of my life. I didn’t want to say goodbye to you, I wasn’t ready to say goodbye, though to be fair I don’t think I would have ever been ready to say goodbye. You fought so hard and for so long and you truly deserved peace and life could not offer you the peace you deserved. I know you were scared, I felt it when I held your hand as you left our world. All I hope is that you’re not scared anymore; I hope you’re at peace. You are the true definition of what a father is to their child. You were always there for us in everything we did. You dedicated your life to us, even when we all reached the age of adulthood you never stopped or even lowered your fatherhood duties. When you were diagnosed with cancer your duties of fatherhood remained- we, your four children were your top priority, you were not going to let anything stop you from your mission of being a father and supporting your children. Your health was not your number one, your children were. And for that we are forever grateful and so very lucky to have called you dad. You were so present in our lives every single day, which is why it really hurts to not have you here with us anymore. The emptiness that comes from losing you is unbearable, it’s a pain on which you cannot explain, and as the first year passes I realise the emptiness will never go away, it is burnt into my heart forever as a reminder of what great love and support I have had in my life. I have learnt that I don’t want it to ever stop hurting, as I don’t ever want to forget you and what you meant to me. The past 12 months have been the most challenging and intense journey to date. I have never felt so broken, yet so strong and powerful at the same time. You were not only my dad but also my most trusted friend and adviser. As you’re not here to fall back on anymore, and there isn’t anyone else that trust more than you, I had to learn to stand strong at all times and to trust my own instinct, this has taken my all year to learn, though I feel like I have it all down pat now. I learnt from you the ability of getting back up again when the world knocks you down. I have learnt to let nothing and nobody stop me from doing what I want or need to do. I am not invincible, but I know that losing you has made me stronger than most people out there. So I am going to use this strength and live a life you would be proud off. I miss you so much, I miss telling you about everything that happens in my life. So until we meet again may you rest in peace dad, as when we meet again I promise to talk your ear off and tell you everything. I love you and will always love you.

Alfred Hahn

I knew Alfred for the past eight years, and for the last couple of them he was suffering but he barely let on. He continued to coach junior football, and go with Beryl and the boys to football matches in the city. It was at these that we would have our Germany/England football ‘arguments’. I’ll admit he got the better of them, and always with his wry grin to finish off. Alfred was a great bloke with a very good sense of humour. Gone too soon.
