Honouring my Father

When you lose one parent, it hurts and you feel overwhelmed with grief.  When you lose your last parent, it sends you into another realm of disbelief and denial.  They are the people you have known the longest and made you feel that
 you were the best thing that ever happened to them.
My family was shocked last week with the untimely death of my father.
He loved clowning for the camera

 His 4 daughters, 1 son-in-law and 2 of his grandchildren arrived in Victoria, from around the globe, to bid him 'bon voyage' for his next journey to meet all his loved ones who left before him...
My father loved the good life, so food and drink were one of the highlights of his day.
What better way to honour him
 than by feasting for a few days and toasting him.

We even were treated to
 a home cooked Korean meal fit for royalty!

All washed down with fine wines from Dad's cellar!

With our final goodbyes said, a rejuvenating walk in Beacon Hill park with the wildlife was in order....

...followed by a crisp walk on the beach.

Good-bye lived a fabulous life!
You are loved and will be greatly missed!
