Memories of...

This last week has been one of the hardest I can remember. My dear dear Dad passed away, surrounded by my Mum, brother and myself. It was sad yet knowing he is at peace gives us comfort at this time. 


dad and Thomas

This is my grandson Thomas and Dad - January 2014.
The funeral honoured the man he was, gentle and loving always looking out for his family and friends. It came as a shock especially after my Aunt had passed away only the month before...  oh boy will  we miss him.
I have been so blessed by friends near and far who have sent flowers, cards and messages of support. Thank -you.. I love you all.
I am off to Melbourne for our annual Quilting retreat and so will be away for the next five days, I'll show you some pictures of the project when I get home again.

Happy Day and Hugs

Hello Dawn,
I know how you feel. My Mom is gone now for 3 years and it still hurts.
We all miss her so much.
I wish you all the best and remembering the good times helps.

I'm so very sorry to hear of your incredible loss. Our Dad's are special and you must keep those memories alive - especially for the grandkids. I feel your pain as I lost my Dad at Christmas time and I have a cherished photo now beside me of Dad and my son Thomas reading the book 'grandpa and Thomas'. May all your wonderful memories keep a smile on your face and by talking about those memories, both happy and sad, he will live on in you all.
