Rupert was like no other! He carried the Windansea spirit in his heart. We'll miss you Rupe.

The Rose of the World
Bow down, archangels, in your dim abode:
Before you were, or any hearts to beat,
Weary and kind one lingered by His seat;
He made the world to be a grassy road
Before her wandering feet.
WB Yeats
