You don’t know how lucky you are

Archie FawthropToday marks a very special occasion for Janet’s family, it would have been her father’s 100th birthday.

Archie was in his 99th year, before slipping away from us last year.

He never experienced any major health problems during his lifetime, and his love of life alone would have been enough to see him through many more years, but his frail body said it was time for him to hang up his hat for the final time…

 We were lucky to have been able share his charm, wit, wisdom…his warmth, for so long.

We will celebrate his wonderful life this weekend, surrounded by family and friends, and whilst perhaps there will be a tinge of sadness there will be plenty of laughs in what will be a joyous occasion for all…

 And as I went for a walk through the park this morning I swear I heard him whisper his most famous line, the one that always brings an infectious smile to your face, the line that sums him up perfectly.

“You don’t know how lucky you are”…

 Ps: How cool is Archie on that motor-bike!
