A Photo a Week Challenge: Dear Dad…….Miss you lots

This week, Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge is ‘Recording History’. It’s ten years ago today since my dear Dad passed away, the day after he and mom celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. This photo was taken in 2003 when our family met for lunch at his favourite restaurant, ‘The Pot and Kettle’.


I miss you, Dad. xx

  1. What a moving, poignant post, Sylvia. The emotion it evokes is palpable. 60 years is quite the milestone, and how happy your family looks in this photo. Best, Babsje

    • Yes, it’s sadly so true, Kate. I think as long as we have our parents, we can still feel young, but once they are both gone, we’re ‘it’. They’re the two special people who have known us and have been known by us for our whole lives, and it’s bound to be a great loss.

  2. Oh Sylvia, what a beautiful family photo of you all. What wonderful memories even though I know you will never stop missing your father. Lovely tribute to your love for him. Hugs to you from me ❀ xx

  3. you’ve posted an honorable tribute to your Dad, maybe he smiles, watching you from heaven! Remembering my Dad, I wrote some song lyrics, perhaps all of us should make a tribute to their dads anyhow, right?

  4. What a lovely photo of you all. We don’t realize how we are recording history at the time, only after loved ones in the photo make it “history” I am always glad to have them to look back at.

  5. A lovely picture with your parents. I have a picture like that I treasure as much as you treasure this one. Good memories are a treasure too when you miss people.

  6. Wonderful photo – though it’s very hard to do, so we must remember all the good times we were fortunate to have in our backpack together – instead of focusing on what we have lost – it has always helped me – memories are gold… πŸ™‚
