A fond farewell

We are very sad to have to say good-bye today to Alan's Grandad Vic, who passed away in England this afternoon. He was a real spitfire, flying back and forth to Canada to visit all his grandchildren, and to meet every one of his great-grandchildren. Here are three generations of Pugh men all together, when Sawyer was just a few weeks old, in the summer of 2007. We feel very lucky to have seen him so often over the past few years, and so sad that we won't get to see him again. He was a lovely old man, and at 91 years old, he'd lived a good long life. Still, it's hard to say good-bye. He will be missed.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about Alan's Grandad. Tell Alan for me.

  2. Oh, Erin, I'm so sorry to hear about your family's loss. Vic sounds like such an exciting, lifeful man...I'm sure you all feel blessed to have had him not only in your lives, but of your little guys, too. :)

    Keeping you and your fam in my heart and prayers...hope you find comfort in the memories you have of him! :)

  3. So sorry for the loss for your family. It's pretty neat though that you got to get a generation picture. I was able to get a 4 generation picture when my son was a baby and my great grandmother was still living, it's precious to have that memory.

  4. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  5. oh dearest Erin, :( i am sooo sorry to read this. Hugs to you and alan and the boys. This was such a great tribute to him though.

    let me know if you need anything!

    hugs darling girl. xoxo

    ps. i love his cap! & the double buttoned coat. Vic was not onl a spitfire, but stylish.

  6. Our thoughts are with all of you. Take care and we hope the happy memories with Alans Granddad ease the saddness of his passing
    Love Ya Kelly
