My Rock - My Wonderful Dad

Fun & fond memories of Dad
Still linger two years on
Forever in my heart is he
Even though he's gone

Papa to his grandsons - walking in Mt Cook National Park back in the 80's

Always had time for his darling ganddaughters that arrived in the 90's.

Rescuer of Barney & friends that were randomly scattered in the garden...... I just love this photo, so had to include it ;o)

Papa to a 'new crop' of grandies in 2003

Borrowing some fruit off of the neighbours tree.
