SAD START TO THE NEW YEAR
Lost a good friend and neighbour over the Christmas. Our dear friend Jack passed away whilst on holiday in Spain.
In his 90's Jack retained all the good humour, devilment and principles of the archetypal Englishman. He served his country in WW2 in the navy and saw active service throughout the globe and was proud of his family near and far.
I will miss our chats putting the world to rights and that twinkling in his eyes. I will always think of him as an aged hippy, who did what he wanted to do, but always with consideration for his fellow man.
Jack you will be sorely missed.
