When he came to Australia he was meant to go back to his Country, but he met my Mother and they were married a year later. My Father was a very caring and loving man, he would do anything for anyone.
       
         His Brother's stayed in England and my Father never saw them once he became a citizen of Australia. I never met my Father's side and I have always wished to. When I was little my Father and I used to send Tapes and Letters to my Family in England. His Mum's name was Mabbel Francis Snow. When I was born my Father named my middle name the same as my Nanas.

           When I was 3 my Mother and Father had a Separation and Me and my Brother and 2 sisters were put in a Home.My Father fought to get us out and take care of us. My Father raised us from the age of 4 and I absolutely adore him for all of his hard work to keep the Family together.

          My Father come from a small town in England. The Town was called Melton Mowbray  it was@ a quiet town. The population was small. The Melton Mowbray Flag is Red, White and Blue. Melton Mowbray is a Town with alot of Historic sightseeing. My Father has always lived in Melton Mowbray before he moved to Australia.

          My Father became ill when I was 14 years old. No matter how ill he was he still looked after 3 girls on his own. He was a terrific man and a terrific Father. He passed away when I was 16. I will never forget the fun times we had in our up- bringing. My Dad had 4 Brothers their names are Kenny, Bob, David and Steven.

              I really never saw my Mum much, but I loved her. My mum didn't care about anything when we were young because she was a heavy drinker. That is why I hate Alchol.
