Saying goodbye to a father and a friend

On the 26th of November, my dad died.
He’d been battling various forms of cancer for just over a year and as much as we’re saddened by his passing, we’re also relieved that he doesn’t have to suffer any more.

Yesterday (Monday 7th December, 2009) We held the funeral for family and friends at St Cuthbert’s Anglican Church in Carlton.
Many thanks to all of those who came along. It was great to see so many faces, many of which I haven’t seen in years.

Staff at the Botanic Gardens organised a lovely arrangement of grasses and water lilies for the coffin. Mum has posted a photo on her blog here.

He was an amazing Dad. He seemed to know everything and was a great source of knowledge throughout my life and will be inspirational for years to come.

I love you dad.
