Remembering dad

Posted by charles2006 (My Page) on

Hi my name is Charles and Its coming up to the 39th anniversary of my
dad,s death ( Gordon Haskell).
He was 47 and I was 14. It's really weird because it only seems like
yesterday that he died and never a day goes by without me thinking of him.
He was a plant scientist and there is a tree in Kew gardens London planted specially for him. As a boy he would spend all his time in the gardens there - entrance was a penny.

When i found this group i thought relatives remembered might
be helpful to you, so please don't think i am spamming.

My Dad was cremated and I really regret that there is no real grave that I can visit.
I wanted a way to permanently express my feelings and share them with family and
friends, so I created to be a free resource to help others.
Also it gives me a place to visit as there is no grave.

My dad's memorial page:

If it is of help to you, or you can think of any way to improve it please don't hesitate
to drop me an email.

My condolences for your own loss and all best wishes to you from me.

RE: Remembering dad

That's a wonderful tribute to your Dad. It's too bad he died so young; he was taken not only from his family, but also from the scientific world. I enjoyed reading about him and his fine, important accomplishments.

My dad died about 12 years ago at age 69. I've remained close to my stepmother. She was so kind to him when he was ill. I'll never forget that.

Thanks for your post.

RE: Remembering dad

That's a lovely site, Charles, and a fine tribute to your dad. He was a handsome man, with a look of genuineness (if that's a word) about him. My husband was a scientist, too, with a doctorate in chemical engineering.

Thank you for sharing this.


RE: Remembering dad

What a loving tribute to your dad! It's always such a shame when our loved ones leave us so young, and even more sad to know what they could have continued to contribute to mankind if they had lived years longer. Who knows, maybe they can do more from where they are. That's what I like to think, anyway. Thank you for sharing your dad with us.
