  11. Dear Dekens.

    So sorry for your loss.
    Sorry I could not be there on the day of the funeral to support you all. My thoughts were definitely with you all.
    I just watched the service and what a lovely way to say farewell.
    As Wayne stated you always learn something about someone’s life at a funeral and I learnt a lot just now.
    May he now rest in peace. Farewell Poppa.
