Happy Father's Day & Remembering....

Been a sad day...remembering my Dad and wishing so much he was still here with us. We've had a family day at ours, so its been nice to all be together.
Some may find it kinda strange but my Dad is at home, he was cremated and sits on the fire hearth in the living room....one of his favourite places to be in front of the telly. I have put my card there with him today.
Just thought I would share a few pics of Dad and the little men in our lives....

On holiday in Canada

Celebrating his 50th birthday

Having fun at my 30th birthday

My nephew Billy - Dad's number 1 shadow

My great nephew Cameron - number 2 shadow

And here are a couple of pics from Dad's remembrance 60th we held in May

Me & Cameron

The band & the bra collection mounting up

Sparkie the bands drummer adding a humorous element

If I could write a story
It would be the greatest ever told
Of a kind and loving father
Who had a heart of gold
I could write a million pages
But still be unable to say
Just how much I love him and miss him everyday
