Bye Dad

I'm up at mum and dad's again. Dad passed away last night. The normal 2 hour drive felt like much more than that when I came up with my sister last night. He looked very peaceful, and even had a cheeky smirk on his face still. I'm just so glad I got the chance to spend some great time with dad last week for a few days. I already look back on that time with a lot of happiness.

Dad spent yesterday afternoon with some people he had worked and trained with in his long career in the airline industry. Although he wasn't talking, mum said he was still smiling and nodding his head while the guys were reminiscing about their younger days.

He gave mum a hug around 8pm, and was gone not long after that. It's nice to know that he was with it and not in pain right until th every end.

Miss you already dad.

Thanks for posting about your dad, it was great to see him holding the float plane.

He looked like a grand sort of guy!
