Yesterday, family and friends gathered at the Barwon Heads Resort to celebrate the life of my dad – Grahame Brown. Their were people from all walks of life. Some were their to support family members and other’s were there to grieve their own loss of a wonderful friend, father, teacher, brother, uncle and husband.

We all learned something new about Dad’s life. We all took another step in the grieving process … it was a beautiful day and dad would have been lost for words.

I wrote this song 4 years ago, soon after dad was diagnosed with liver cancer. It felt right to play it at the close of the ceremony … my kids (without prompting or planning) sang the final chorus along with me which helped to get through it. It also feels the right time to share the song with the world.

    The song for your dad is truly beautiful. I Asked Rob to guess the artist and he was naming all sorts of famous singers. Impressed with your work. Grahame would be very proud!

    Thanks Kara … I just picked up your comment. Everyday I am reminded on dad when listening to music, watching sport and eating sardines on toast (something he taught me to enjoy for Sunday lunch!).

    Geoff, just saw this, so belatedly sending lots of beams your way. We are coming up on the year anniversary of my dad’s death, so this is on my mind…
