A Special Day


Raindrop from my balcony railing…



A misty Saturday morning, we were on our way to the cemetery.   Five years ago today, Dad passed away suddenly.  He would be 80 yrs old if he was still around; I miss him.


The long & winding road leading up to the cemetery was deserted; not a single car was in sight.  In a blink, dark clouds started to roll in, morning drizzle turned to heavy downpour as sheets and sheets of rain fell.  Within minutes, the entire cemetery was engulfed in a thick fog; we could hardly see what’s ahead.


I brought along a bundle of flowers, a good mix of vibrant purple and green. They sure brightened up the gathering gloom.



How time flies, Dad and Veonie (granddaughter) were holding hands during his last Sydney visit in 2003.  Who would have thought….


Rest in peace, I will be back with more flowers and yes, no yellows ones.  I know.


GOD be with you Daddy.
