4. Father's Eulogy, Jul 11, 2011, Leighton Buzzard, U.K. My Son Ron
Ron was the blue eyed boy with curly blond hair - everybody loved him. Perhaps not so good at school but the master at making friends. So much so he was voted in as 'Junior Mayor' of Harare - not a mean feat. In his youth, I remember his great interest in Scouting, and he did so well becoming a 'Queen Scout' - also no mean feat. As a Queen Scout he attended the World Jambore in Japan - one of his highlights of his youth that I remember.
Back home he excelled in the printing business, having his own company 'The Print Shop' for many years.
But I think his great hobby of building things left us all in amazement. His wonderful job of building houses on his plot in Inyanga and the one he and Sue were building in Spain are testiment to that.
In all of this, he loved and was loved by Sue and his son Colin and daughter Tracy and Andy, and of course his grand children Corrie and Devan who are now mourning his passing with me and the rest of the family.
To all of you, we share some burden of your loss and promise to help you to achieve closure by all means possible.
Lots of love
Dad. and his sister, Helena Rose, nee Anderson)

5. Bill's Eulogy, Jul 16, 2011. Dad/Bill

"Ron, I just came back from Africa and I was going to telephone you to tell
you all about it. I got to admit it, I did pass quite a few tears when I
suddenly realized it was too late. The fact is guy, I walked by your old
house in Harare and along the roads we trod as kids; with Dad we recounted
the tales of family expeditions; I traveled to Kariba and passed beautiful
country you too traveled; I caught a Tiger fish too small for me to
challenge your catches (unfortunately); and certainly Karen and I well
remembered our fun visits to you in Harare.

The thing is my friend, you have done much in your life to support your
family, friends and country and I want to make sure you know that I know.
And, another thing, our walks in the hills and dales of England while short,
will be locked in my memory forever. We puffed and panted a bit, threw
ourselves on the grass to rest staring up into the sky, and carefully
calculated the distance to the nearest Pub. I so much would have liked to
do that over, and to visit your latest project in Spain. If it's OK with
you, I'd like to plan that with Sue, Colin and Tracey.

Ron, thanks for the memories and friendship.

Farewell,

Bill"

Hi all

Thanks for joining together last evening for a little get-together to
celebrate Ron's life. I promised I'd email my note which will be read out
at the funeral ceremony - see below. Also, I've included a guest pass to
access the slide show on Flckr.
