Our dearest Father,

Although we lived across the seas from each other for the past 30 years you were always in our hearts and thoughts. We will miss your pearls of wisdom, your extraordinary intellectual knowledge, clever wit, fatherly advice and the love we know you had for us. You may no longer live in this world but the love and memories we have of you will stay with us forever.

Libby and Meg
