It’s been six years now since Dad passed away. It’s always a crummy time – what exactly are you supposed to do on the anniversary of someones death? You think of them all the time, so I’m not sure what you are supposed to do on the actual anniversary day. Usually, we would all spend time together, have dinner and take Dad some flowers. Unfortunately, being on the other side of the world, I’m not able to do that this year.
When Dad died, I gathered all the photos to use in his memorial slideshow. I’d scanned a lot of them just before he got sick, for the 60th birthday book I made him. I still have them saved on my computer, and I like looking at them from time to time. So this year, I’ve decided to post some of my favorites. That’s my tribute to Dad. I miss him lots.
To everyone back in New Zealand and around the world, but especially to Nana Mac, Alana and Mum, I’m thinking of you today. I’m sorry I can’t be there with you.
I’d like to think that Dad would be happy I’m on this adventure, as trying as it might be sometimes!
