  • Dear Uncle Davy,

    My sister Donna and I are two of your numerous nieces and nephews whom you never met. We would like you to know that you are often in our thoughts, in our conversations and securely in our family tree.

    Today is ANZAC Day in New Zealand, a special day when we all stop and reflect on the people we have lost, the amazing things they did and the ultimate sacrifice they made. You, Uncle Davy are one such person and we are sorry that it has taken us this long to write to you about it.

    Donna has placed a picture of you with your medals on your information sheet; we hope you think it is ok.

    Lots of love from all your family,
    Angela and Donna Hume, this day 25th April 2022 from New Zealand.
    Public - Angela Elizabeth - Other relative - 25 April 2022
