Dear Ann and Blair,I was so sad to learn of David's death. It has been a long time since we have all been together, but I remember him so fondly, his wonderful laugh and sense of humour and his great kindness. I feel so lucky to have known him and you through your friendship with Mum and Dad (who have both passed on, Dad in 2006 and Mum in 2018 at 97)Please let me know the plans for the celebration of life, if it would be appropriate for me to attend. GĂ©rard joins me in wishing you both strength and peace in your fond memories of David.Love, Sally
