Death of a good friend
Just heard that a good friend from college days, Lawrie was found dead at his in house in France on February 15th. He was a great guy, one of the best, we kept in touch and saw one another over the years. He lived most of his working life in Singapore so we didn't meet that often. But that did not break the bonds of friendship.
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for nearly 47 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was four in April 2017 and he now has a sister, Georgia, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my fifth year of ministry.
