  • To my Great Uncle John Northey Sabin,

    I never met you, you were taken long before I was born, but you were never forgotten by your sister Kate Colwill, who talked of the brother she loved to her children Gaynor (my mother), Mary, Peter and David.

    We will always carry you in our hearts.
