Sad times

Last week was a very sad one for our family. Our dear Pa (my father-in-law) died peacefully on Monday. He had become very frail and had been in hospital and spent the last days in a very kind nursing home. Even though it was expected it was still very sad for us all as we will miss him so much. Pa was such a special man. He lived a very happy life even with quite difficult health issues and we were so fortunate to have him in our lives for so long. He will be missed by our dear Ma, his 4 children, 11 grandchildren and 14 (with 3 more on the way) great, grandchildren and all the many in-laws. He has been like a father to me for all the 42 years that I have known him.
The funeral was held last Wednesday and Bruce, Paul, Janelle and Deirdre did an amazing job organising a wonderful service which celebrated Pa's life.
