Last year on the 30th of November, my mother rang me and told me my father had passed away. I was really stunned. I remember I was sitting at the computer updating my blog. I cannot remember what I was writing but I remember deleting it all and telling everyone that my father had died.
A few days later I wrote about what a wonderful example he was to us. My father had a very strong faith in God and his actions spoke of this all the time. I can see now what a good influence he was in my life and in raising me to care for others and to live our Catholic faith to the full. I am ever so grateful to both my mother and my father for the values they have instilled in me.
Tonight Steve and I will be praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet for my father.
