  6. Gerry… I will miss you, your sense of humour — I don’t have that many people who laugh at my jokes.

    Simon, I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I am unable to attend the services as I have had eye surgery, but my thoughts are with you, your mother, your father’s grandchildren, and of course yourself and your wife. I look forward to seeing you again upon my return to work. Heartfelt condolences to you and yours.
