Beautiful Flowers .....

Our sad week has been brightened by some beautiful flowers I thought I would share because I haven't picked up a needle and thread in the past week or so!   The funeral for my amazing 91 year old father in law, Frank, was yesterday and it was a fitting send off for an incredibly inspiring life .... thankyou to everyone for your beautiful messages and emails and telephone calls ... we appreciate all your thoughts and prayers ....



And we especially appreciate the ladies in my Needlework group who assisted us with the most beautiful morning tea after the funeral ... thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your willingness to jump in and help me in a time of need ..... especially to Jenny and Tricia for organising and co-ordinating, and to everyone who helped in any way ... it was amazing .... thank you !!



And to the friends who we work with who made sure the office ran smoothly in our absence, and to the dear friends who arrived with food and comfort (chocolate) ... you know who you are .... we appreciate  each and every one of you!


And to our children, their partners and families who made the week so much easier for us all ... many thanks ... Dadeda would have been very proud of his grandchildren as they said their goodbyes ....


And so this Easter we remember with great pride a truly amazing national treasure who will be sadly missed but always greatly cherished ..... his smile lives on in the faces of all the grandchildren and great grandchildren he leaves behind ....


And on a happy note to brighten our Easter some dear friends sent an arrangement of chocolates complete with smiley face to make us smile this Easter .... we have a lot to be thankful for ...



And on the smiling theme .... Ash and Tim have had a doubly difficult couple of weeks as they cope with the loss of a good friend whose funeral was today.   Chris was a surfer with an amazing smile, so Ash and Tim have designed and printed thousands of stickers saying "Smile like Drake" to distribute to the over 1000 people at the funeral and there are many facebook tributes to this amazing young man ... taken too soon at 23 years of age ... RIP Chris Drake .... xx
