A Tribute to Bang

197053_5522395925_8063_n

This week the LWAT family lost someone special.  He was Nathan’s Dad,  my Daddy Milner,  Reuben and Eva’s Bang.  He was a man of random facts and even more random jokes.  A man who loved gadgets and had a sure touch with DIY (something that genetics failed to pass down to Nathan). He had an eye for a picture and most of my favourite photos of the kids are ones that he took,  not counting the one where a baby Reuben looked like William Hague.  He always had a cheery greeting,  a solution to every problem,  a ridiculous story for his grandchildren and a new toy to show us,  whether that was his telescope, his iPhone or a funny bottle opener.
It would be a disservice to the truth to pretend he wasn’t a silly man but that’s one of the many things we loved about him and he was good company for my equally silly father.
We’ll miss him tremendously.
