All Saints' Day

 

Remembering my dad

Today, I remember my father, who ushered in the 3rd generation of Lefèvre cabinetmakers and founder of our company Lefèvre Interiors.

The older I get, the more I miss him. His listening ear, his wise advice and his ability to find answers to all problems.

    I am sorry for the loss of your father. I, too, have lost a father who was dear to me. How wonderful to have had a wise and loving mentor. On a side note, you look exactly the same as the picture taken in 1998!

    Wat een mooi eerbetoon aan je vader, Greet. Hij is veel te jong gestorven.

    Greet, I can tell just from the photos that he was a very kind man. Toussaint can be challenging, especially for those of us that have lost loved ones so close…Hugs to you…

    I lost my mother many years ago and still miss her everyday. I'm so thankful that I still have my Dad and that he's still going strong. I just wished he lived a little close. Beautiful post and you DO look exactly the same.
