Sadness...


My Dad
Aged 80 years

 Dad's condition deteriorated on Monday evening & he slipped gently away near dawn on Tuesday morning. A peaceful death for a man who lived his life quietly & loved his family. I was able to spend some quiet time with him...it was very special as he was the beloved Dad of old. It was an honour to be able to be there & share his final journey...but it is a loss we will always feel. Mum is doing well...thankyou all for caring...it is greatly appreciated.
