Dad

Mum & Dad
It is three years today since I lost my dear Dad. He thought that flowers were for the living and not the dead and would have hated for us to take flowers to the crem, but I always buy my mum a nice big bunch in his memory (he would have liked that idea ) and this afternoon I took them across to her. The flowers always contain pink carnations, they are what dad always bought her as that is what she carried on their wedding day. They were three months away from celebrating 60 happy years together. Miss you lots Dad and love you still.

What a great photo. Your dad sounded like a wonderful person. We lost my grandpa in December 2002, and Christmas time can be very bittersweet. {hugs}
