We dined Susan out as one would expect and had an overwhelming amount of messages, even got one to my private address just minutes ago. We compiled a book with them in !! The word document was over 50MB when finished but I have printed down to pdf and is now just less than 3MB !!! I have a lot of pictures as well but I need to give you some names and info to go with them. It was once again a very emotional experience and an end to a marvellous career which we were all very proud to take part in.

Above is a fantastic photographic collage of Susan's life.


Finally, a brilliant presentation in PDF format of all the messages Susan received with photos of the senders which I originally intended to break down to put on the site but he's done such a good job I decided it's better left as is. Click on the gorgeous picture below to view the presentation.

All the very best for a very long and happy retirement Susan, it was a privilege to know you and I'm proud to have sailed with you.
