Goodbye My Dad

My Dad passed away this week. Eighty three years old, fifty six years married, four children and twelve grandchildren. He was a kind and loving father, renowned for his sweet tooth (which he passed on to me). It's a sad time for us, but a relief for him after thirty years of Parkinson's disease.

I took this photo late last year........I don't usually do selfies, but love this last one of us together.

Love you Dad.
