Thank you, Tink.
Thank you, Olga and CC. We never know what a year may hold.
My mother's partner's father (my daughters' non-biological great grandfather)... Last year, I forgot to get him a gift and felt so awful when we shared out the gifts under the tree at my mum's house. I promised myself that this year I would get him something extra special. He passed away earlier this year and now I won't have the chance... I hope he knows I'll be thinking of him this Christmas.
I will also be missing my Nan who passed away in 2006. I used to visit her every Christmas morning and she never got to see my children. I would have loved for her to be here to see my children enjoying Christmas, the way she used to enjoy me, my brother and sister enjoying the day :smitten:
Also thinking of my father who took his life at Christmas when I was a child. Not truly missed as I was too young to really understand (you can't really miss somebody you never knew) but I will always spare a thought for him at Christmas time.
Here is to all of those who can't be here with us this year :tree: And love and respect to all who will be missing loved ones this year http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k1...ileys/hugs.gif
I will be remembering my dad, who passed away, after much suffering, the week before Christmas in 2009. :(
Our son who would have been 21 tomorrow...:angel:
