Dad's last Birthday card

Morning everyone,

My dad's funeral took place yesterday, wednesday 13th November, and if he was looking down he would be so pleased and proud as the whole ceremony was beautiful. The RAFA and Royal British Legion  did him proud. There were numerous standard bearers who honoured him and  old friends and colleagues attended as he was wonderfully thought in high esteem by everyone. Although obviously a very upsetting day both my sister and I felt so proud of him and to have had so many good years with him.  I have posted the last birthday card I gave to him in June on his 89th birthday. I never gt around to post before as since then his health started to deteriorate and I haven't really done much blogging recently.

Hopefully 2014 will be a happier year.  Hugz Dee x


  1. My thoughts are with you at this sad time Dee, but you must have been truly proud of him. You loved him very much, and he will have known that. A lovely card for his ultimate one. God bless. Love and hugs Christine xx

  2. Hi Dee, sorry I'm late visiting..it's so hard when we lose our parents, my Dad passed away far too young, almost 25 years ago, but we lost my Mum 6 years ago last Friday..it is hard, but happy memories so eventually consume our sad thoughts. Thinking of you. Your card is lovely. Hugs Carole Z X

  3. Good morning Dee,
    So sorry to hear of the loss of your darling dad. No one knows the sadness you are suffering. I lost my mum at the early age of 41 dad was a lot older when he passed. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of them and always will.
    As Carole has said your wonderful memories will eventually take over from the sadness.
    Your card is beautiful, he will have known thaat it was "made with love"
    Sending you some (((((hugs))))) in hope that they will help a little.
