  • Lovely man, I was baptised in St. David’s church by Minister Baragwanath when I was about 12 years old. He visited me in hospital before I was about to have a big operation some years later. I can remember being very moved by his presence and the prayers for me. My Mum and Dad thought the world of him too. God bless.
