It's been a while!

The past couple of months has been a real juggling act with my time. With Dad deteriorating daily, there have been many trips to Adelaide to be with him and support Mum.

Sadly, Dad passed away on the 6th Dec, and we had a lovely private funeral with immediate family on Tuesday morning, and then a 'Celebration of his life' service for the public in the afternoon.

We can be thankful that Dad had a very long, happy, healthy and fulfilling life and it was only in the past months due to the brain tumor that his quality of life wained.

In Dad's words..."I've had a good innings"!

I'm very sorry for your loss Annette, cancer can be very unkind for all involved with it. Hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas, thinking of you.

Hi Annette, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad passing away. It's good that when they look back on their life they can say they had a good life. When my dad was in hospital and things were a bit scary he used to say that too. thanks so much for visiting too the other day... take care, Maryann
