Sad Day

 It was my Dad’s funeral today in the UK.  With COVID travel restrictions, we had to watch over a video webcast from our couch in Regina.  Dad was 88 and lived a very full life.  He went into hospital at the end of September with multiple health issues and came down with COVID while hospitalized.

Dad joined the navy in 1946 at the age of 13, and served til the early 70s.  Not sure where or when this is from but it’s a good picture.  Take care of yourselves.

  6. My condolences. Losing parents is one of life's nastier rites de passage made so much worse by the pandemic. I hope you have lots of good memories to fall back on. It helps!

    Cheers,

    David.
