Feeling Sad.

Sorry I have not been around much this past week or so. Dad was taken unexpectedly into hospital  with breathing difficulties and passed away on Friday.

Norman.
28/10/1924 - 25/08/2017


Dad had a passion for roses and their garden at home was always full of them. I have made a card as a tribute using just one of the many photos that he took of his blooms.


Card Details.
Made with the help of 3 generations. ( Father, Daughter, Granddaughter) 

                  Dad.    Rose grower and photographer.
         Me.     Card design ValeryAnne. 
  Faye.    FaDoodles stampset.



Love

Hi Mrs A,
I'm so very sorry to read of your great loss,, what handsome dad you had, your darling dad is five years older than my dad. Yours reached a good age, in his nineties, however I really think no matter when it is it is so hard to lose a parent.
I'm so busy these days because of my darling dad, and other family, but wouldn't have it any other way.

I am a Rose lover as you know, I'm just starting to pick mine again, one of the three dozen bushes, and would you believe the ones picked today were very like the one on your card, how beautiful a tribute to your dear dad.
Thanks for sharing and popping over even when I'm smack in visiting, you're a treasure and a blessing to my heart!
