RIP Sam Dichiera

Our thoughts and sympathies are with Aunty Pam, Tim, Brad, Julian, Narelle and their families at this very sad time.  Dad’s older brother & our uncle Sam Dichiera passed away overnight.  Uncle Sam your vibrance lifted the hearts of everyone that knew you.  Riposa in pace.

“No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.”

Salvatore Dichiera 30th April, 1942 – 18th June, 2011.

More Adelaide 1966

Just found some time to add a few more photos from the Adelaide trip that dad & mum took in 1966.  Dad would have been 20 years old in these photos and mum 17 years old.  Top left photo shows dad on the beach holding a small shark, top right photo shows Terry Bottams (front of photo) looking at the same shark.  I believe it was just found on the beach, not caught.

These next two shots are of my mother climbing out on to rocks for a photo.  🙂


And this photo of dad is obviously from the same day, sight seeing somewhere else.

Happy Birthday Dad

It’s hard to believe another year has flown by so fast.  I was having a heap of fun earlier photographing the kids playing and being silly.  It really reminded me of you and all the fun we used to have with you.  Happy Birthday Dad.  xxx
