He said: “I took that photograph and I always loved it because of the pensive look on her face. That was my Meggie.
“We were so close. I would come home from work and I would hold her against my chest and we would walk around for hours and hours.
“Sometimes I get the feeling people think I don’t love my daughter. I do love her very much.
“I would love nothing more than to put a picture of Archie in a frame and place it beside the one of Meghan.”
