2000th Post: Dedicated to My Dad

February 20, 2011

“She remembered him smiling, and realized that time, that great old healer, had finally accomplished its work, and now, across the years, the face of love no longer stirred up agonies of grief and bitterness. Rather, one was left feeling simply grateful. For how unimaginably empty the past would be without him to remember.”
— Rosamunde Pilcher

    Congratulations on reaching 2000 posts. I would like to echo everything my Mum said above. I know so many people love your blog for many different reasons. I especially love that it keeps distant family apprised of all the goings on of their relatives. Long may your great pictures and thought provoking quotation selection continue.

    I also love that Bill features in this milestone post. You have captured the classic Bill smile and head clasp. I know the chuckle and joking that always accompanies this face and I am so sad we will be losing it.

    He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
