Memories of You Dad


This is my entry in the monthly challenge at http://www.whitewith1.blogspot.com To use white, yellow and flowers. This month the Cancer Council's Daffidol Day is held to support cancer research and I thought this was the perfect occasion to scrap this photo of my late Father and I on my Wedding Day. Dad passed away in November 2004 after suffering from Cancer and it was the hardest thing I have ever had to cope with. Losing a parent is more than just losing a relative, it is like losing part of your soul. Dad was so nervous and practised his speech everyday leading up to the Wedding and I remembering being so proud of him at the reception. His words are still with me 27 years later. Rest in Peace Dad, I will always love you.

Hi Sharon,
Love this tribute to your father! It's really beautiful! Last year my father had cancer too, but luckily he recovered. And what I remember most is being so terribly afraid of losing him (still am, to be honest)....
By the way, thanks for leaving such a nice comment on my blog! Funny to think that we are almost the same age, but your grandchildren are the same age as my youngest! Lol!
Have a great day!
Monique
