    His loving family

    I’m glad his family are with him to share these moments.
    Having just lost my Dad myself (His Funeral is tomorrow), I know how difficult these times are. Tomorrow we am not going to mourn my Dads passing (nobody is going to be turning up in black, or else!) but we are having a celebration of his life as he moves onto the next.
    Although he will be greatly missed by some, to me, he will always be with me.

    My thoughts go out to you Jan, your family & friends at this time as it isn’t an easy time.

    This is truly sad news. His energy has been a credit to the history of those rock-art wanderers before him: seeking out, highlighting and presenting a field that was his love; and showing others the beauty and mystery of these old stones... I wish him well in the venture next to come...
