Still Waiting

Dad, Samuel Henry Drew, was not expected to make it through last night, so I have been up since 4 waiting for news.

Not waiting any longer. 

Dad slipped away peacefully about 8:30 am today,  21st August 2010 aged 89 years and 14 days.

This image was 'lost' for a while, but I found it again last week. It was part of my childhood, hanging on the wall at home. The date on the back say 20 November 1940, which is most likely the date on which Uncle Oliver had it printed. The photographer was Vernon Henry Neelan Cox, of Yundah Street, Shorncliffe. It appears that he was a talented amateur, as his occupation is given as Salesman in the electoral rolls of the time.

Resolute was Great Uncle Albert's beloved Linton Hope Rater, and it won many trophies and pennants over the years.
