Happy Birthday

Posted October 4th, 2012 in Photos of Horst by neil

Happy Birthday Papa! You are in our thoughts every day, and we all miss you dearly.

Here is a fun photo that I found while scrolling through his archived photos on the computer. A really great shot that shows how he truly enjoyed having fun with his grand-kids. I don’t know exactly when this was taken, but according to my mom, it appears to be Spring of 2010.

A special moment for me: Last night, Brody went to his dresser and pulled out a book saying… “this is my favorite book”. It was the book of heart photos in which Papa had four photos published (Focus: Love). I had fun pointing out each of his photos to Brody as he browsed through the book; he wanted to see exactly where Papa’s name was.

    🙂 So I wasn’t wrong with my mail to your mum… – it WAS Horst’s birthday.
    Happy birthday (belated) dear Horst – you’re still in our minds and hearts and if you should look down on us, know that we’re smiling back at you!
    I got the book Focus Love from Amazon UK – took a while to have it sent to France but it is a wonderful book and like Brody, the first thing I did was hunting Horst’s contribution down…
    Take care, all of you. Kiki

    Thinking of you family; hope everyone is doing fine! I still miss your father here on Flickr . . . especially when I look back at a photo and see his comment which was always so kind and personal.

    Dear Papa, it’s been a little over 2 years that you have passed and you are still clear as day to all of us, especially Jake. I work in outside lawn & garden and when I’m closing and get to see the beautiful sunset, I think of you :):) It has gotten easier as the days go by, but we all have our days where we just wish you were back with us…love always & forever your daughter, Stephanie
