Missing Dad

Two Blog Friday.....

I just realized my dad died 31 years ago today. I can't believe it's been that long. I lost my precious Mum the day after Christmas this past year. I'm an orphan now. It's hard to believe that I'm now the "older" generation.

Isn't he SOOOOOOO good looking?? I sure didn't realize it when I was a kid, but he died when he was 59 and I'm nearly that age now! It's all relative, isn't it?

I miss you dad!

Big Hugs,


  1. He is handsome! What a lovely memorial to your father. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. We lost my FIL last year and I miss him terribly.


  2. Love your sweet blog and so thrilled I found you! You are an inspiration! Yes, you father was very handsome. Missing is hard at times, I understand.


  3. My thought are with you.. What a special post...

    All My Best!

    Just A Gal...

  4. He is very handsome.And no matter what our age,we always want mama and dad.I too are the oldest generation.In fact my niece and I are our ONLY ones left.Me,her and our kids.Thats it.
    Yes,my friend who happened to be a therapist said yrs ago,bla,bla,before you become an orphan.I had never thought someone with parents could become an orphan.But thats how it happens to all,isn't it?...Ann

  5. Hi
    That photo of your dad makes me think of mine. He was only 59 when he died too and I have a wonderful photo like yours of him in his uniform. He died 28 years ago and I still miss him! His birthday was April 2 and I had thought of doing a post of him in his uniform too!

  6. Your dad is a very handsome man..That's a very nice picture of him in his uniform.. Sorry to hear about your mom too.. What a beautiful post...

  7. Yes, your father was quite handsome! thanks for sharing the wonderful picture. What a treasure.


  8. I am so glad I found you, your Dad is a very handsome man. I am very sorry to hear of your mothers passing.
    Its always so hard losing our loved ones, and I find the anniversay's are always so difficult.
    If I can help in any way, please let me know.
