I’ll apologise in advance for not picking up today where I left off last week, but i’ve been wanting to share some video footage with you for so long.
Below is a video of Nick’s First Video Entry on the documentary he started for our daughter Claudia, once he discovered he had pancreatic cancer and wouldn’t be around much longer.
Today’s post will be short in words, but full of emotion.
WARNING: if you were a person close to Nick, you may find the below footage too emotional to watch, I know, because my sister still can’t sit through it. I, on the other hand, love watching the documentary he made, and can smile and laugh along with him.
I hope by sharing this video, you gain further insight into why i’m writing this blog, as a way of keeping Nick’s memory alive, and not just for our daughter, (who’s going to be 5 this year!) but also for our family and friends and anyone who knew Nick.
As per the video, Nick just wanted to be remembered, and while the documentary is a perfect legacy that he’s left behind, so are the beautiful messages, comments, emails etc, that I have received about Nick since launching this site. They are all being stored away for Claudia to read one day, so please keep them coming, I can’t think of a better way for her to know her Dad, than by reading about him from his friends, family, colleagues etc.
I also know there are people reading along, who have never met Nick, so I hope this shows you a little more about us, and the strength he had, to put this video together, after receiving such a terrible diagnosis.
When watching this video I barely recognise myself, since I have changed so much since this was filmed over 3 years ago. I’m a much stronger, positive, independent woman now, all thanks to Nick and what he taught me during his illness.
Without further ado, please find the video below, if you haven’t already skipped all this writing to watch it yet!
So, you crying yet ? Maybe just a slight tear, because if you haven’t gotten emotional watching this, you must be a robot! Ok, just kidding!
I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if you’d like to see any more video’s, I have 8 hours of footage to sift through!
Til next time, Michela xx
