My deepest synpathy to the Moran family. John and I worked together at the Anti-Inflation Board in the 70s. He was one of the finest colleagues I ever had the pleasure to work with.

No-one could sing Old Man River while standing at the piano as John could. A great voice and a great friend for all times.

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sunshine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

All our love and deepest sympathies go out to you and your sisters my dear friend, Chris.

Hugs and Love, Heather and Chris
