"I never, never anticipated where we are today. I never knew anyone as strong as you, Shona. I saw you at the hospital, how you fought. Skat, I want you to know that I am so proud of you. I have never known anyone with your fighting spirit.
"Even on that hospital bed, you defied the odds so many times. I'm hurting right now, my heart is bleeding. I wasn't ready for you to go. The girls were not ready for you to go. I can't imagine my life without you, Shona," she said.
Never stop fighting for the things you want in life, was the message he left for his daughters.
