paths you always had time for a kiss and a friendly word. You were a real all rounder. The tribute and the cartoon of your entry to heaven in the EDP on Thursday, 8th July 2010 says it all. You gave so much to so many quite effortlessly. Or so it seemed.
Say "hi" to my mum up there. Rest in Peace Roy. x
