A year since Dad left us

It’s a year today since Dad passed-away.

It’s got easier to deal with and think about as the months have passed. Life goes on. But yes, today (and on the 7th, which would have been his 80th birthday), I did find myself in contemplation.

Doubly so when a $7 refund cheque for him for a cancelled utility arrived recently.

His influence is still felt, and he is remembered fondly.

As my sister said so much more eloquently than I:

A year goes by quickly. Hope you are getting in good reading in the great library in the sky, Dad.

    yes, those anniversaries are always sad. Do you see any of your father in your kids (eg mannerisms or behaviour)?

    My farther passed away about 2 years ago and I find myself wondering what he would have thought about current world events, he was an avid follower of the news and papers. Perhaps he’s still watching things with interest :-)

    All part of lifes rich pagent but sad all the same.
