These were days I will always treasure. Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. I forgot to tell Simon about that one!! My Grandpa showed his love through actions.

This is what underpinned all your other wonderful attributes and if we look to analyze what it was about you that had such a wide appeal we find it in your instinctive feel for what was really important in all our lives. For such was her extraordinary appeal that the tens of millions of people taking part in this service all over the world via television and radio who never actually met her, feel that they too lost someone close to them in the early hours of Sunday morning. My grandmother loved to show me her garden and citrus trees. When Louise was five, she had to undergo surgery. She helped at a old peoples home.

He saw a lot during his lifetime: a world ravaged by war, he was himself served in the armed forces in Vietnam , and an uncertain world with the Cold War, the Oil Crisis, and Iraq all understandably influencing his views on the post-war world in which he himself grew up and, later, raised his own family.
