Our Ould Fellas

My father, Seamus Byrne - gone from us nine years today. 

Bert's father, Johnny Orr - gone from us seventeen years yesterday.

Matty died in late April. Our parents, so far,  have all died late Spring/ early Summer when the evenings are lengthening and the flowers are in bloom. I associate this time of the year with sadness and loss.

I still have my dad, at 90, and am blessed in that.

The older they get, the more valuable they become. The point is. their venerable age is our lesson. our appreciation, our treasure. This just revealed itself to me.
