    So many of my fondest childhood memories feature Auntie Carol and Uncle Dick, going to the Devon county show in the back of the little red Prinz sports car, Water bombing Uncle Dick and lending him my dads socks for the evening ,walks on Exmoor with Sean the Shetland sheep dog, riding around in the VW camper while on a weeks work experience, being introduced to Burrows Electrical leading to a change in my career from window cleaner to Aerial man. From boy to man when I reflect on my life you often appear in those reflections. Thankyou for your contribution. Chris.

    We appreciated your friendship and good humour.
    We shared parenting skills as our daughters were similar age. Memories of camping expeditions on Exmoor, hiking over the moors with prams. Marooned on the beach at Abbotsham cliff as the sea came in faster than expected. A brilliant electrician, we have missed his methodical and tidy handiwork. Carol and Dick were like Fish and Chips, the ideal compliment, sharing love of nature and homemaking skills. A trip to Canada to visit Linda and family was clearly a highlight in later years. We cherish our precious memories. X
