fathers' day tomorrow :-(
on 8th july it will be two years since ahf died.
this is the last known picture of my father - speaking at the leo baeck college ordination on the sunday. that afternoon was the final of the european championships, and we spoke a little before he handed the phone over to my mother and went to watch the game on television. a while later he picked up the extension to say, "the greeks have scored!" and a while later than that he picked up again to announce with glee, "the greeks have won!"
those were the last words i heard him say. and they were about football. he died on the wednesday.
i have this photo on the wall of my office. he never could keep his tallit on straight. neither can i :-)
