Loved having you as a teaching partner at Coronation School. We sure had a lot of fun and you worked hard to share your love of knowledge and ideas with the kids. Loved watching you at teacher-student Ball Games cracking a hit onto the school roof. Always smiling. You will be missed.
Sorry to hear about Dave, my brother loved the golf days with the boys.
