      Thank you VERY much. So very true. He was real and sincere. I am going to ABSOLUTELY miss my daddy and I cannot believe that he is gone. He wasn’t perfect, but I felt that he was the definition of integrity : doing the right thing even if no one is looking. He loved Bermuda, he loved her people, he loved St. George’s and he loved his grandchildren. No matter what, he would always guide us to do or say the right thing, to take the high road, to be the bigger person, to show respect. Wish that he was still here. Such a loss. He was such a wealth of information and wisdom. Ethlyn would have been VERY proud of her boy :-)
