Lest We Forget


composit for poppy day

My Dad is in hospital at present with a bad infection and will miss the ceremony at the Nursing Home for Remembrance Day.    Today we remember my Dad and all the other veterans who served this country and kept us safe.




I hope he can watch a parade on television and enjoy the day. I'm sorry to hear he is not well... hopefully tomorrow will be a brighter day for him.. xox Please tell him I said 'thank you' for his service to our country!
