Tomorrow is Father's Day...

...and I hope all the Dads out there have a lovely day.

I lost my Dad back in August 1997 but I still miss him very much.

I don't have very many photos of my Dad but these are two that I have on my lounge wall (sorry for the poor quality but the light wasn't very good).

George Henry Korten: 19/9/1920 - 17/8/1997
This was one of my Nan's photos that we all got copies of. The babe sat on Nan's lap in this studio snap is my Dad...Mum has a photo of my sister at a similar age and the likeness is amazing.
This photo is from my parent's wedding. Dad never liked wearing suits but he always 'scrubbed up' rather nicely...LOL

I'll be thinking of you Dad, even though you are not here to share another Father's Day with us....................

Fathers day isn't just for those still with us, but like you say to all :). Plus I'm a believer in we don't need a date to think and love our loved ones. x
