dad....

...we think of him and miss him everyday...today would have been his 71st birthday... and it is very hard to think he is not here....he was such a great dad and loved the kids....family was very important to him...and so we are a close family
The car club are coming today...a kind of memorial run...to see all his cars and tractors and such...

The kids could always ride in the cars, truck or on the tractors and play on the ploughs and other bits...and E spent a lot of time helping him in the shed...as did the boys at the farm...They loved spending time with him and Dad loved being with them too...
Dad hated having his photo taken but I never took any notice and kept taking them - I am so glad I did as I have lots of photos...but we would sooner have the real thing...Lissy
