To mark the anniversary of losing my Dad, I light a candle at the local Catholic Church and ponder a while in their Garden of Remembrance.
This yearly vigil began when my son was in the Montessori Preschool in the church hall there back in 2002.
My Dad passed away a couple of years before this in 1998, soon after giving me away in marriage.
Here are a few photos of my Dad and me.
I look about 1yr in this one so probably 1965.
At my graduation in 1987.
Walking me down the Aisle in February 1998.
Poignant for a number of reasons as this was the last time I saw him before he died. Well we did pop in on our way back from our honeymoon, so that was definitely the last time. We had a cup of tea and a Kit-Kat and I thanked him for a wonderful speech at our wedding and hugged him too. Love you Dad xxx.
