My Dad’s Book – The Gallery

Here’s a special book for you. A book that nearly didn’t make it. A book that took a long time. A book that my family are very proud of.

This is my Dad’s Phd.

My Dad passed away 3 years ago and was too ill by the time he was granted his Phd to really appreciate it. We only got sent a copy of his work a couple of months ago and its lovely to see it in real life. I even get a mention in the acknowledgements for my part in doing the typing – I’m really glad I could help.

Miss you every day, Dad. Rest in Peace Dr Patrick Burke MBE xxx

    Now that’s a book I want to read! I remember Pat doing his Phd so vividly as it seemed that the whole family were fully involved in it. x
