Leanne met the Shadow Home Secretary in Parliament last month to plead for changes in the way that disabled claimants are treated by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
Leanne, mum to Cara, 12, Scarlet, 10 and Willow, two, said: "On the day my dad hung himself, I visited him, but I was in a real hurry because it was coming up to Christmas and I'd been at work and was rushing to collect my children from school.
"I didn't hug him or tell him I loved him. That will haunt me always. Hours later I went back to discover he had hung himself. I hope everyone who reads my story hugs the people they love this Christmas. You never know when you will run out of time.
"After Dad died, I discovered he had ordered presents for my daughters, walkie-talkies, to be delivered to my house. I like to think it was his way of keeping in touch from heaven."
Kevin was a devoted father and a fit and healthy man when he was younger. He was a painter and decorator and great at DIY.
