For Dad

Earlier this year my Dad died. He was always an enthusiastic player, and later conductor in brass bands. I came across these members of the NSW Fire Brigades band playing carols at my local shopping centre, raising money for the Children's Burns Unit. I said hello to them and gave a donation for my Dad. It turned out they knew and remembered Dad well. Unexpected things happen at unexpected times, don't they?

  1. Lovely, Sally! I'm so glad that you stopped and spoke with the men, and to find out that your father's memory lives with them, too! Happy holidays to you!!

  2. Isn't it great to be in the presence of others who remember your dad fondly? I have experienced the same.

  3. Yes Sally it's amazing how in the most unexpected circumstances we find ouselves overwhelmed by memories of our dear ones.
    Your story again shows how much we miss out on when we don't have/take the time to talk to people.

    Your post yesterday at the QVB is beautiful too.
