Another professional photo by Dougie Yak and Georgia Corbett. Me and one of my best buddies, thirteen year old daughter Lauren. I have two “Daddy’s Little Girls”. Every father should have at least one. They still think that I always do the right thing and that I know everything. I know. I know. I’m about to get a lot more stupid and wrong in the next two years. But for now I’ll enjoy the adoration and hugs. — with Lauren Palmer.
Raced back from Harrison and the big garage sale at Agassiz United Church to attend the afternoon funeral of Rhonda Benedict in our United Church in Abbotsford. Almost three hundred people were present to commemorate the life of this young woman who died recently in a car accident. Our daughters Lauren and Jordan thought of her as a big sister and of her daughter Amelie as a little sister. Lauren was asked by Rhonda’s mother to do the solo during the service and my wife recorded the last part of it. It is a perfect song for Rhonda. Lauren is allowing me to post it only after much persuasion as she feels she did the song only for Rhonda. RIP Rhonda You will be missed by our family.
