Kate Pascoe Squires is with Nancie Squires and Tony Squires.
Last night we lost my incredibly strong, inspirational and compassionate father in law Merv Squires.
He fought, my gosh he fought… he wasn’t ready to go and we weren’t ready to let him go… but the universe had other plans.
Merv, I love you for everything that you stood for – you accepted me into your family when everything you knew said not to, you loved with all your heart, you had the best moustache of anyone (ever) and your love kept us all afloat.
Our family is strong because of you.
We are trying not to be adrift without you.
We will do you proud.
We promise you, with all our hearts xx
Kate Pascoe Squires
