We will miss your intellect, humour, dogged determinism, and persistence, but most of all we will miss your reliable gentleness, warmth, and loving kindness.


Full fathom five thy father lies;

Of his bones are coral made;

Those are pearls that were his eyes;

Nothing of him that does fade,

But doth suffer a sea-change

Into something rich and strange.

Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:

Ding-dong,

Hark! Now I hear them – Ding-dong, bell.


William Shakespeare

“The Tempest”.
