My dad's funeral took place yesterday, wednesday 13th November, and if he was looking down he would be so pleased and proud as the whole ceremony was beautiful. The RAFA and Royal British Legion did him proud. There were numerous standard bearers who honoured him and old friends and colleagues attended as he was wonderfully thought in high esteem by everyone. Although obviously a very upsetting day both my sister and I felt so proud of him and to have had so many good years with him. I have posted the last birthday card I gave to him in June on his 89th birthday. I never gt around to post before as since then his health started to deteriorate and I haven't really done much blogging recently.
Hopefully 2014 will be a happier year. Hugz Dee x
A great welcome to everyone who takes a few minutes to visit my blog, and hope you will return. I started off scrapbooking, but making cards soon overtook and I really enjoy seeing the end results. I enjoy blog hopping to see the wonderful creations from other crafters, there really are some talented, friendly people out there.

I'm sorry I've been absent from the blog world over the past few weeks, but as some of you will know, my dearest dad has been unwell for several months and over the past few weeks deteriorated considerably. After a very brave battle my dad passed away peacefully on saturday 2nd November 2013. He battled so hard and was in such excrutiating pain over the past few weeks. Atleast now he is out of pain and together with my mom and his mom and dad.
Below is a photo I posted of him last year which shows him so proud in his RAFA blazer and medals. Also the last photo I took of him with his great granddaughter.
Love you dad always. God Bless x
