  • Dear Pop I had no idea that you went to war when you were in your 20s. I'm sorry I never met you or got to know you, or saw you training horses with so much care and patience. My Dad loved you, and tells me stories about how gifted you were with horses - and Diane tells me about white-baiting with you and Trevor, and how special you were. I hope there were peaceful times for you after the war, where you could forget for a time and feel at one with the world again. Perhaps with your beloved animals, or in those moments with Daisy when life was good. Kia kaha, Pop Always remembered. With love Your granddaughter Kathryn
