My Dad

Jim Manley Mar. 6,1924 - Nov. 27, 2010


My dad, after suffering a decline in health over the past year, passed away yesterday evening.  He was a talented artist and a man full of humour, grace and dignity.  One in a million, and I will miss him very much.

♥Love you Dad♥

So very sorry to hear about your loss. I lost my wonderful Pops Dec. 19, 2008. This is a very hard time of year for many of us who have lost some one so dear to us, but it also makes us reflect on those family and friends who are by our side and be thankful for having them here.

Again, my condolences and God bless you and your family.

Sue...I have missed so much I didn't realize that you lost your father...my deepest condolences. I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose a loved one especially our fathers.
