WOYWW 740: A Sad Week

Most of you will have seen on Facebook that Dad passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning.  Mum and my sister were with him at the end - he was non-responsive so they didn't call to rush the rest of us in.  We had spent the day with him and had a chance to say goodbye.

He loved his family and his cats and was able to see them via the camera in the conservatory.  He was very active up to the point he went into hospital which is a blessing.
We will all miss him a great deal.
I have been making thank you cards for us to take to the hospital as the staff on Ward 8 at Burton were fantastic.
My desk shows the heart that we all have.  Dad has one too and is holding it.
I am keeping up with my daily drawing and blogging as Dad always liked my posts even though he never posted on FB himself.
Thank you for all the good wishes we have received.  Don't forget to join Julia at Stamping Ground to join in with WOYWW.
