    It's my birthday tomoro, yeah NYE, how ****!
    It'll be the first since my Dad died. He hasn't been with me on my birthday for 3 years now. Last 2 years he was sectioned & the year before he went into emergency respite, as he was aggressive to my mum.
    But I still miss him & wish he was here.
    Not really a point to this thread really, apart from I can't really express anywhere else, how much I miss him.
    I'm listening to songs that remind me of him, I wondered if any of you like them?
    Blowin in the wind- bob Dylan
    Everything I own - Bread
    Annie's song- John Denver
    Call the man- Celine Dion
    Dance with my Father- Luther Vandross.
    And the list goes on!

    I'd love to hear your "memory songs"

    Xx

    It will be my daughters 2nd birhday without her grandad on Tuesday, she will be 10, her's was the last card he wrote (he had taken them over when mum could no longer do it), last year we used the same card but i think this year we will have to accept that he he has gone and keep the catd in her memories box.
    Music played a big part in their lives and when mum had a diagnosis of dememtia we sat down and did song choices with them,
    We must teach our children to respect the land...Judith Durham
