I loved reading about your Dad Karen. He sounds like a great person and a great Dad. What an interesting life he had, his memoirs must be fascinating. Is his brother still alive? The three daughters/sisters look very much alike.

What a beautiful and loving tribute to your father this Father's Day.

Susan

This day has many meanings for me. Your tribute was lovely.my dad died at 69. Way too young but every year I send him my own special message. It's also the first day of summer. My mother passed at 66 on June 21st. I will be her age next month. It's good memories for me. Cherish the time you have.

Karen

My mother passed at 68, which was also so young and it's so sad that both of yours passed in their 60's. sure it's scary to reach the age she passed. It will be a big year of reflection for you.

Karen

Thank-you Barbara, it's taken 5 years for me to be able to speak this way and finish without breaking down. He was so special and I miss him everyday.

Naomi,
My father's brother passed 9 years before he did. We always felt that we were on borrowed time after that. They were both genuinely great men. The autobiography he left us is amazing, it was the last, most important thing he gave me before he died, knowing he didn't have long. It meant everything to him in the end. Thank-you...
