On this day in 2005 Bruce Robert Malcolm (my dad) passed away aged 68.

A lot has happened since then.

His oldest grandson (now 15) decided to barrack for Collingwood.

His granddaughter (now 13) swapped calisthenics for dancing

He never got to meet his 2 youngest grandsons (now aged 7.5 & practically 6).

He’s missed taking his 2 youngest grandsons (proudly wearing their Fitzroy jumpers) to watch the Brisbane Lions play.

He’s missed watching his grandkids grow up -going to their footy, cricket, basketball, games; dance concerts; school concerts; grandparents days.

And we miss him. Heaps.
