deeann28 today we remembered a great husband, father, grandfather and proud retired fireman. It was a beautiful service and the support of the Calgary Fire Department and the Calgary Firefighters Association has been humbling. { 1. the front table at the service, the fire alarm box is the unique urn that we used, 2. firehall #14 where the Firefighters flag was at half mast at every firehall today, this is one of the halls that Doug worked at 3. Doug's hat and the flag that was presented to Pat} 2w

  •   deeann28 This really doesn't do the noise justice - I ran over to shoppers drug mart at 11:20pm for a blank dvd for the memorial slide show and was back home by 11:30 and if it's at all possible it seems 10 times louder in my living room. 2w

deeann28 angel food birthday cake with whip cream frosting - a Doug speciality and an all time favourite of mine! { I must admit it is a mix between feeling comforted and one of slowly ripping off a band-aid as I scan 68 years worth of visual memories - emotion of the night is " complex" } 2w

deeann28 he loved his grandchildren and they loved him. { as a photographer I have always known the importance of capturing memories but the last few weeks have strengthened my resolve that visual artifacts are just as important as the written word - my heart cracks a little bit with every picture I scan as I build a slideshow but I am comforted by the evidence of a life well lived by a man who loved large and in return was loved by many } 2w

deeann28 sorting through 68 years of memories. { and in a sickening feeling of déjà vu I find myself mourning yet another papa for the 2nd time in 3 weeks. My father-in-law, lovingly known in this family as Dougie-dug-duggerson or papa c to his grand-kids passed away suddenly and unexpectedly last night and for a few moments our worlds stopped and our hearts shattered. I find myself in a daze weaving somewhere between the stark reality that we have lost a great man and the surreal feeling this is just a nightmare that I surely will wake up from any minute. In the 25 years that we have been in each other's life's we have shared many a story, laughs and in what seems to be a pattern with the papa's in my life, a regular dose of teasing (how much I would eat at dinner -not enough-, my energy level -too high-, my million and ten questions -too curious) and as I begin to write his eulogy and create a photo slide-show I find myself overwhelmed by trying to best represent a man that has touched so many and been an instrumental part of my story. However, I am warmed by the memories, the outpouring of love and support from our family and friends and of course the sharing of stories that are just as colourful as the man they celebrate! 3w

deeann28 spent the day with one of my favorite "S" people. We got our learning on in the morning at the Child Care Connections Fair at MRU and then spent the afternoon looking around some cool salvage/antique places. { 101/365 #imperfect365 } 3w

deeann28 today I needed this little random heart find on the ratty-tat-tat heater on my way up to work...I kept it in my mind all day - and then tonight while I was posting this picture I noticed an even bigger random heart that I didn't see this morning or the numerous times I have looked at the picture during the day and boy oh boy could I use another #randomheartfind for my soul tonight. {today was the celebration of Papa's (Erhard) great lived life and I was sad I couldn't make it due to work but my thoughts and heart were with all his loved ones and Danke Papa for the random hearts } 97/365 #imperfect365 4w

deeann28 While raking up pine needles at the land, I accidentally pulled up moss and as I went to remove it from the rake in the hopes to save it, I noticed the piece I broke off was a perfect heart, I gently placed it on an old tree stump & really hope it takes. {94/365 #imperfect365 #randomheartfind } 4w
  •   owlyheather Water it.....pretty much drown it and push it into the hole of the stump as hard as you can. Should take. 4w

deeann28 I promise there is a beautiful mountain in this picture but apparently it is camera shy and hiding behind the fog. {#imperfect365 93/365} 1mon
