Our dear Dad- taken from us before conversations were finished, projects completed and new adventures commenced, but relieved that you are now reunited with ‘ the girl at the pool’ whom you haven’t stopped loving and have missed so dearly. Your bravery, strength and dignity were on display to the end and have left us with inspiring memories and a history that we will treasure – your loving children Trudy, Nick and Kym.
