10 Things

This month ~ a pictorial tribute to my father-in-law. 
 A life of service begins
 A loving son
 Marrying the love of his life
Becoming a family
 Always the family; first, last and forever 
 A proud and devoted Grandad
Sharing a name and a birthday 
The final time, little did we know it

Please forgive my indulgence with this post.
My lovely, lovely father-in-law.
A man with an enormous heart.
A man who lived a life of service to others.
An adored husband.
A beloved dad.
A devoted grandad.

A wonderful tribute! I should have done something similar as today is my mum's birthday (we lost her 9 years ago to Cancer) but I don't have 10 photos :( so treasure all those photos you have!
