thoughts and prayers for all.
my forever memory of Fred was him walking back down Widen Hill with us, when the bus got stuck on the hill! I think he just shook his head and laughed at us for acting silly, but making sure we were safe!

"Dad, your guiding hand will be on my shoulder forever." My Dad- A father's touch, a daddy's kiss, A grieving daughter, the dad I will always miss, An empty house, an empty chair, A father's love, no longer there, A broken heart, tear filled eye, Another soul in the sky, The times we shared, The laughs we had, Things I will miss when I think of My Dad.
