My Dad - a tribute and a personal reflection

On the 8th of January 2019, two months ago by the date of writing, my Dad (Jim Craig) tragically passed away while cycling along the Braamfontein Spruit near my home in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was riding with me and his 3-year old grandson Alex, who travels with me on his child seat.
