Forty six years ago on 17th June Dad was hit and killed by a wealthy drunk driver.
He was never charged. Money talks. But every year since then I have lit a candle for my dad.
He is remembered and loved still. He was a good father and we were lucky to have him.
.we still have him in our hearts. He left school age 12 during the depression..
He went to work then helped look after his family. He never stop working till the day he died
Always he was looking after other people but even so he laughed easily, told jokes and was
a good firm but gentle father RIP my Dad.
Something amazing happened today which I can't talk about here right now but it happened
on my dad's anniversary and I'll always remember that.
About ten years ago i got the Coronial records - it was
a shocking miscarriage of justice. The driver a
businessman from Glen Innes had been on a pub crawl
down the highway but this was never mentioned even
though the Constable queried him - but as fate/ karma
had it many years ago I met a man who was
researching family history - found out we were third
he lived next door to this drunk driver. Turned out my
cousin and his wife helped this drunk driver's wife keep
her house as her husband was planning on moving a
mistress in and chucking out his wife and family...he
died a sad old man nobody cared about...whereas Dad
died and is remembered with love...could not believe
the coincidence that a close rello lived next door all
those years and finally we met.
