    Still here.........

    Hi all,

    I've been absent for a while now due to several reasons,the worst of which was the death of my Father.

    I've just come back from the UK and his funeral........he was 93 and he was honoured by his old outfit the Royal Marines.......his coffin draped in the Union Jack and a Standard Bearer as part of a detail of 4 Royal Marines who saluted his coffin into the Church ...........together with a Bugler to play the Last Post-Reveille.........I will never be able to listen to that again without crying.I will miss him immensely but all that he taught me remains with me, as will all the memories that such a long life generates.

    God Bless you Dad....we'll meet again.
    Da go Te'
    Best to you

    Peter............

    Oh Peter, my Heart and Thoughts go out to you and your family.
    I wish you and yours the strength needed to overcome this...
    Just say: "Rage It", because we already know it's art.

    Peter,
    I lost my Dad 12 years ago. I understand. I'm lucky in that my Dad regularly visits me in dreams. He seldom speaks but his presence there means so much. I hope that you will experience that.

    My sincere condolences to you, my friend.

    Good to see you Peter, so sorry to hear your news though. I know how I felt when my Father passed away just a few years ago but I know he is still with me. My deepest condolences

    So sorry for your loss, Peter. I´ve just come back from a quick trip to the US to visit my ailing parents. It´s so hard. Good to see you back here!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Condolences Peter for your loss! It is a hard loss to accept. Glad that he had a good many years and a good life, but that doesn’t really make it any easier I know. Again, sorry for your loss. I know you will always treasure him in your heart.

    No words mate.... but I will raise a glass to the memory of an old Bootneck.
