I am a Very Proud Mommy and so is Daddy!!!

I am so proud of my son Matthew he got his Iron Ring on Thursday April  19 and he got his final mark on Friday. He passed everything so His Proud Mom can now refer to him as a Computer Software Engineer!!!!!

Gary was able to attend the  Iron Ring ceremony and he was one of only a few parents who were allowed to attend (you have to be an Engineer). I was so happy for him to see his son get his ring this is a big deal for Engineers. 

Matthew was so excited about going but he was so sick in the morning.......had the stomach flu. He was determined to go to the ceremony and he did!  All his buddies went out drinking afterwards but one was enough for him.

Convocation  is on May 31th and I get to go!!!!!!

This is the famous Ring

A Proud Dad and an Excited Son
All my children are now independent I am now entering another phase of parenthood.

Mom and Dad

Mom and Dad
This layout is off my parents. The picture on the left was taken when they started dating in 1952 and the other was their wedding picture 1955. They were suppose to get married in 1954 but Mom got TB and they had to postpone it for a year. I used Clever Handmade embroidery paper and rub ons by Heidi Grace Kress. The birds were the rub ons and I wrote the words. The birds were stitched with We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Fancy Floss Glitter - Primary  and the letters were stitched with Bazzil Basic In Stitch'z - Needle-Floss - Jelly Bean added a stamp and some buttons.

In Memory of My Dad

My Dad . Photo taken by my Nephew on his cellphone not to long ago

I haven't been blogging much lately because my Dad was sick. He passed peacefully away on April 5th he was 88 years old on March 24th.

My Dad was a great Husband, Father, Grandfather and Brother. Never a bad word said about anyone and very generous with his love. 

As a young child my Dad always had time to give me a cuddle ........... I remember getting up in his arms even when he had company.

Dad had a great sense of humour he always had a joke even though some were groaners and he would love to hear a joke.

He was a humble man. I asked him when he was in hospital what year he got his degrees in. He told me he got his B.Sc. from Dalhousie University in 1950, his M.Sc from University of Toronto in 1956 and I then asked what year he got his Phd and he said he could not remember (figured it out that he got it in 1978). He never wanted to be called Dr. Pitt. The only time he would ever use it was if he had to write a letter that required some attention. like a letter to a company that did something wrong!

At his Celebration of Life my Dad's brother (who is 90) talked about their childhood and what a wonderful brother he was. It was wonderful we laughed and remembered Dad as young boy getting into all kinds of trouble.

I will miss him greatly but my memories and his love will always be with me.  
Dad is with Michelle, she has her Poppy with her now.

 I Love You Daddy !!
