    Isn't it funny how chairs have the fondest memories of our parents. I don't mean funny haha, but funny that those memories seem to be of our parents sitting in their favourite chair, with the grand children gathered around. i just love these chairs for they bring back memories to me. He was a fine looking man, John.

    The major difficulty is the pain of having to delete things that also tell the facts of his life, things that nobody wants, because old and outdated. Here is that with the loss of their loved one, they go even fragments of their lives. The picture I see, is like those that I've taken to keep something to remember.
