Gone But Not Forgotten

Weekly Photo Challenge

My Dad, Bill Moore, passed away 2 years ago at the age of 71. He had a good death surrounded by his loving family, peaceful, you could not wish for a better way to move on into the next adventure. I am an only child blessed with many cousins, aunts & uncles. His death flattened me. We were very close, two peas in a pod, my love of music and performing, my sense of justice, instilled in me by his. He treated everyone he met with respect and a great sense of humour, he made people smile – always. Such a gentleman of true character and integrity…so well loved was he.

Not a day goes by…gone but definitely not forgotten.

William H. Moore October 11th 1940 ~ February 12th, 2012

My favorite photo of him. With his first grandchild, Lily at 4 months, not long after his mother passed away at the tender age of 100. Halifax NS, September 2009

Five months later on July 20th his sister Mildred “Meme” Moore passed away at the age of 81. I believe she was ready so she just…let go. We were very close she & I…a jeweler by trade, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, a clever card player, she too was well loved. I miss her laugh.

    Like you stated, “Gone but Not Forgotten.” Lost my Mother to Cancer 10 yrs. ago this month. A WWII Veteran, stationed in London during the bombing from Germany, she had many memories to tell me. She ruled me and my Brother with a iron hand, but was always there to give us what we needed. She is sadly missed, and always will be. A Post about her will be soon.
