This is my lovely dad, who passed away on 17th March, 1987 I miss him terribly. He loved photography and used to develop his own pictures back in the 1950’s, this is a picture he took of himself and my cousins Pam and Anne with Sandy the poodle.
Taking you back to meet my older family, some are still with us but most have passed away now…isn’t it so rotten that the best people in our lives have to leave us! I know Dying is part of living but it is just so sad isn’t it! Thats why you have to make the best of what you have in life! and what we all have is Family…they are part of who you are! Whether you’re family is your friends or blood family. Get out there and enjoy life, dont look back, live life for today and never put of till tomorrow what you can do today! that way you will create memories that will last a lifetime when they are no longer with us…do things together and take lots of pictures and video, its easy these days…and remember to ask lots of questions, write down their memories and you will be able to keep them alive forever…
This is a picture of my Nanny Hilda and Grandad Alf [above] (he was the first person to introduce me to Jellied Eels – I love em!)…and my auntie Jill and Auntie Joyce. (pic taken in the 1950’s) My poor Grandad’s hair…it was never his own in the Breeze lol!
This is a picture [below] of my mother as a young girl being a bridesmaid, she is 19 years old here and the wedding was in Hamersmith, London.
Above is a picture of my Mum, Nanny Hilda, Auntie Joyce, and a neighbour….They must be out on a trip to the sea side, that was my Nanny Hilda’s favourite day out and look at those hats! My Mum’s hat must have blown away 🙂
This is a picture [above] of my Mum and Auntie Joyce with their brother Roy…My Mum is in the middle. It’s a rather damaged picture, but at least we still have it…My Mum is now 92 and my Auntie Joyce is 90…sadly Roy their Brother has passed away 🙁 He was such a good looking boy and as he grew older, he reminded my Mum of James Dean.
…and this is a piccy [above] is of my Dad with his friends and some of his relations at Potters holiday camp in the 1950’s – how cool do they all look!
Bye for now x
