Loving Memory

There is an indescribable amount of grief after losing a father. Losing a father often means losing a protector, a guiding hand, a best friend, and a superhero.

But focusing on all the incredible memories you shared and the amazing man he was can help bring light into your darker days.

Whether you’re building a memorial shadow box, capturing fond memories in a tribute photo book, or you’re simply looking for comfort.

“The loss of my father will always sting. But now, everything that I do is in honor of him and celebrates his life.” – Adrienne C. Moore

“There is no expiration date on the love between a father and his child.” – Jennifer Williamson

“When I was a child, all problems had ended with a single word from my father. A smile from him was sunshine, his scowl a bolt of thunder. He was smart, and generous, and honorable without fail. He could exile a trespasser, check my math homework, and fix the leaky bathroom sink, all before dinner. For the longest time, I thought he was invincible. Above the petty problems that plagued normal people. And now he was gone.” – Rachel Vincent

“You have been there for me, no matter what bad choices I might have made… you lovingly repaired my broken spirit, helped me plot a new course, and set me free to fly on my own once again. There is no greater love than that. You will always be special to me, and no matter where life takes me, I’ll remember you with love.” – Marilyn K. Deacon

“To her, the name of father was another name for love.” – Fanny Fern


Two little blessings. Today is the first birthday, they celebrate together in Heaven. In loving memory of my one-of-a kind dad, Stanley Stein 29th July 1934 – 27th December 2020 and my beautiful Aunty, Margaret ‘Peggy’ Boyce 29th July 1934 – 15th January 2021 My beautiful grandma, Matilda Augusta Stein will be looking after you both. When I was young, I wasn’t too keen on the dark. One holiday, I called out to dad – “is it dark in there, because it’s dark out here”. It became a family joke. The last phone call we had , ended with that little joke. My beautiful grandma, helped me with the darkness ” We will turn out the light and play shadows on the ceiling” We would make singing dogs and dancing butterfly’s. Grandma would share stories until I fell asleep. Stories of her late in life blessings – like my Thierry. Peggy arrived first. Dad was the tiniest. The home was full of boys. Grandma would occasionally dress dad as Peggy because the brothers only took Peggy for a walk in the pram. They slept in one cot and Grandma would put them opposite ways – right from little babes – they would end up cuddled together by morning.
Miss and love you. xo
