  • I guess you always look for someone with your name on the Cenotaph but to see someone with my exact initials prior to marriage and then to see he died on my day of birth was unusual. Dear Andrew, I am so sorry that you died so far from home in a hot country. I always remember you now, even though as far as I know we are not related but I guess you never know. Somewhere along the line we may be related by blood through your English heritage. May you rest in peace and know you are still remembered. Lots of love, Amanda
