Yesterday, was a lovely day as two important events occurred. First of all, my younger son Tim celebrated his birthday.
Preparing to Blow
Tim’s wife Andi, (who sadly took the pics and isn’t shown even though I took one of her) and her Mum Jo, prepared a lovely meal for us to eat. Oliver and Charlotte made sure their Dad had a good time by giving him his gifts. Tim told us he’d had a great day which made us all feel good.
Secondly, earlier in the day Oliver had tested for his Blue Belt in Taekondo and was successful in achieving it.

Above you can see him with his fabulous teacher Richard Dobbs. Grand Master Kim had good words to say about all the participants. I’ve included some short video clips which will show you some of the aspects of the Blue Belt testing.
We missed Ben and Josée as they were on a trip. We also missed Cynthia for sure, but loved having her there in our hearts and in spirit.
‘Bye for now and God bless.
That Wonderful Smile
Dear Family and Friends,
Last Sunday, February 05/2017, our family held a celebration of life/memorial service for our beloved Cynthia. In spite of atrocious, snowy weather, many friends and family members joined together at Mark Isfeld School to celebrate and remember Cynthia’s well-lived life. We had the service recorded for family overseas and for those who could not make it on the day.
Our family did its best to honour Cynthia and to carry out her wish for the service, that it would honour Jesus, her Lord and Saviour.
We trust this video will bring you a measure of peace and some joy. Maybe it will also help with closure to Cynthia’s sudden death.
Much love from the Davies family.
Our sincere thanks to Fox And Bee Media for the wonderful video
Last night, our immediate family went out to celebrate our wedding anniversary as we often did in years gone by. The big difference this year was that Cynthia wasn’t there with us to enjoy the evening. We had a good time, which is what she would have wanted, but oh how we missed her. I know there will be a lot of “firsts” this year, as 2017 rolls by. I also know Cynthia will always be with me/us in spirit, at each of these “firsts” as the year progresses. Love you always my darling.
Ben et moi.

Cynthia and I were married on January 03-1966. It was one of the best days of my life, for I got to marry the love of my life. We had so much fun together, had two wonderful sons, gained two beautiful daughters and two super grandchildren. What could be better than that? So my friends, please join with our family and me tomorrow in raising a glass to my dearest love, Cynthia. It would have been 51 years of marriage tomorrow if she had made it…almost, but not quite. R.I.P. my love…I will love you always.
