  • Hi Uncle Dick.. Think of you often so, have taken this opportunity to send my love, in remembrance. Visited the Hakaru RSA today and attended the Anzac Parade. Parked in a paddock and enjoyed the rural atmosphere of the locals and their Returned Servicemen. Guess you and Dad are keeping everyone up there entertained with your special brand of humour. Love Carol x
