Remembering our elders; Getting together, all young and old . the extended family taking flowers to our dearly deceased; I remember as a young kid being told to pay my respects to grand uncle who I'd never met, then gradually as i grew older, there were those whose funerals I remember well. Today is 2 years after Friend and Father died, with time change, we were in our flat in SA with family and friends visiting with consoling words; yet despite the years passing by, Pa's inner peace and strength, his quiet joie de vivre , our many short holidays and drives together; our ease of talking together day or night is warmly cherished and missed; fortunately, i can picture those special moments still ;-)))

    I love such old photographs. You are lucky to have all those beautiful memories of your dad.
