Hilary, so sorry to hear about your dad. I too lost my father this year.
I have many fond memories of being at your house, horsing around with your brother and keeping your sister amused.
My best to you and your family.

There is a gift in every moment of our lives and even in dying. For Richard Missan the gift is silence and peace now. I did not know Richard, but I do know he must have been a good man because he has an amazing son, Andy, and family in our community. With heartfelt thoughts and prayers to all the many wonderful Missan Family members.
