  3. Fiona, Martin & Peta – I have just learned (Saturday 6th June) of dear Graeme’s death. I am deeply saddened but not surprised – maybe the good Lord worked in odd ways, but Graeme is now at peace. I guess that he has struggled and suffered greatly with his illness. I have one regret that I didn’t get to visit him in his illness. Maybe for myself, I can remember him in his vibrant days – did he keep the statue of St. Stanislaus?
    You have been, and will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers at St. Mary’s & St. John’s Bathwick. May he rest in peace – and rise in glory.
