A Memory in Our Hearts

 
Bruce Harper
1951-2012

It has been over a month since my last post. I'm back again but before I post any cards I thought that I would explain where I have been. In my last post I mentioned that my father was in the hospital. Unfortunately after a hard fought year long battle with cancer, Dad passed away on August 31st. We will miss him greatly but take some comfort knowing that he is no longer suffering. dad had a good life up until the last year and we have many happy memories to hold in our hearts.

Dad was a wonderful crafter too. He spent many year refinishing furniture, and turning things on the lathe but in the later years of his life became a wonderful chipcarver. He didn't have a blog but if you pop over to my Mom's blog you will be able to enjoy some wonderful examples of his work.
