  • Dear Gar

    I have never got to meet you but daddy (Karney) is always talking about you and the things you said to him like with rugby you said "The bigger they are the harder they fall". I wish I had meet you. I am lucky to have your name as my second name. You are such a great rolemodel and you should be really proud of yourself.

    Love you lots from Jayden Victor dawson (JD)
