Saying goodbye

We farewelled my Dad last Saturday at a spectacular location; Woodhill in Tauranga, New Zealand. The photos posted here give you a wonderful sense of the splendor and serenity offered by this converted Kauri homestead. The weather was perfect on the day and the service itself unfolded just as the family had hoped. All in all his funeral was a fitting tribute to life truly well lived.

It was lovely to see so many friends and family come together, despite the sad occasion. In the days leading up to the service numerous people generously offered their support and assistance. For example, Garry's brother David, a professional graphic designer, retouched the photo Dad chose before he died.  The resulting image was sunny and bright, bringing a huge smile to my Mum's face the moment she saw the finished article.
