    Isnt it wonderful weather?!
    I know we are all a bit miffed about the footie, but, hey, what a beautiful day!

    I have Dads funeral this Wednesday and seem to be spending too much time worrying about what to wear!!!....maybe its a sub-conscious ploy to distract me from the real issue...or maybe I am just vain!!! :) We have all said we would wear bright colours but I have veerd back to black...well..black skirt and bright red top...so a compromise at least! It seems that the time between Dad leaving us and the funeral has really dragged...will be better once Wednesday is over.

    If I could I would send you all a huge bunch of flowers each for all your support...but my lowly wages wont allow...so....

    Huge hugs for everyone and big thank yous to you all. :D

    Maria, you are a star! You have been so positive, so loving, so thoughtful of your dad.....he would be/IS so proud of you! Well done!!!!

    I am sure Wednesday - deperately hard as it will be on the day - will later prove to be a source of strength for you. I do love that idea of wearing bright colours... but know what you mean....

    Well I have certainly found that I can 'feel' a virtual hug - so why not smell the scent of 'virtual flowers'......????

    Will be thinking of you on Wednesday.....

    Love Karen (TF)

    Hi Maria

    We are all star struck!

    Remember that Wednesday is a celebration of Dad's life, wear bright clothes and play cheerful hymns/music, he deserves it. My thoughts are with you.

    Hugs

    Dick

    Dick's right
    When my dad died on the front of the order of service was printed "A Thanksgiving" of dad's life and that's what its all about...we were all so thankful for dads life and we celebrated the fact that his life had made our lives so much richer....and that's the legacy he gave us and for that we'll always be so grateful...:)
    Love
    Wendy

    My brother in law said some lovely words at my dads funeral - this is a part of it

    I do so miss him, but have such good memories of a great childhood

    Take care Marie
