Walter, it hurts to think your constant welcome and good humour towards us your neighbours will be simply a fond memory now. But your stories of more than 80 years of life and farming in the valley will live on in the recordings we have of our lunches together and trips to the woods when your rich accent mingled with the spring birdsong. Rest happily overlooking all that your long life has known.
Sally and Richard
