Dad died last night at 4am as a beautiful new day dawned over Edinburgh.
He died full of dignity and at peace surrounded by his wife, four children and brother in the loving and caring environment of St Columbas Hospice. We will miss him desperately.
In an Evening News article in 1994 he said that he wanted his epitaph to be
“The eternal optimist whose dreams came true.”
