My deepest sympathies on your father’s passing. In many ways I think it’s the hardest part of being an expat/immigrant- the family and friends who are now so much further away, in mileage and time zones - making the celebrations of milestones and presence during more somber events so much more complicated. Thank you for sharing your father with us.

Lovely. I lost my dad a few years ago, so I’m really feeling your second post. And we live in the Algarve so are glad we didn’t need to worry about the crowds in Lisbon during the pope’s visit! But we’re enjoying the photos!

So sorry for your loss. Obrigada for your note, I struggle with the same. We just went back for my mom’s 101 birthday. I keep thinking it’s the last time I’ll see her, kind of felt it this time, we’ll see.

Thank you for sharing your father with us. Your comments about leaving family to move abroad resonated with me and I am sure with many of your readers. Living our best lives is what our parents want for us, even if it takes us far away. So sorry for your loss.

Parkinson's is such a vicious disease. I am so sorry for your loss, but hope he is off doing amazing things wherever we may go next.

Such a beautiful tribute to your Dad. Im so sorry for your loss. Even though my Dad passed in 2007, your video brought him back to me for a moment, also a man of that sharp dressing era and supreme love of family above all else.

A lovely tribute to your dad. I am sorry for your loss, but he will remain with you more closely that our can imagine. I know this because my dad passed away in 2002.
