Those were the days

My father Alex passed away peacefully at home in Melbourne last week surrounded by his loving family.

Here, you see Dad with me on the right and my brother Jonathan on the left of frame. We got this shot in December 2016 at Dalmeny on the South Coast.

Alex was 95 years of age and in his last years loved walking and dancing. Farewell Alex, we will miss you.

Even after a very long and happy life, it hurts to lose the physical presence of a loved one like your Dad. I too am sorry for your pain and am heartened that he had such a good spirited life and has remained with you in your hearts. Beautiful tribute, Stephen.

I love your trio and Alex's smile is contagious. Sincere thought with you, Stephen and how good to be able to enjoy a dad's presence so long when the father seems so joyous. And I love imagining him dancing, I can easily picture him and this touches me a lot. Hugs to you all & peace for Alex.
