  25. Dear Mavis Claire Rob Ian and Andrew

    My condolences to you all. He was a great man and i will never ever forget him.
    He was a great boss and i will never forget that he gave me a go and believed in me at the age of 15. I still to this day talk about my days at BWD and whenever i go past somewhere that we had seeded or planted out it takes me back to those days.
    That was a very touching and beautiful service / tribute to him.
