  • How we have loved hearing stories about the adventures you and our darling Pop had together! He absolutely adored you and the pain of losing you must have been almost unbearable. As his older and much revered brother you influenced him in an inspiring and positive way and he, in turn, has profoundly influenced us and so many others - in this way your remarkable legacy lives on. You are remembered with immense gratitude and heartfelt love as we honour you at this special time.
