Remembering Denis Fillion, my dad
One year ago, on April 25 2012, my dad, Denis Fillion, died here in our house on Caledonia in Victoria BC. It was fitting that he spent his final months and days here in the house he loved so much — he moved in in the late 60’s and bought the house in 1972. He was a biologist, a teacher, a gardener, and an artist, and this house is a testament to his uniqueness and creativity.
I miss him every day, but being here in his house, and working in his garden reminds me of all of the good times we spent together, and it makes me remember how lucky I am to have had such an amazing dad.
