Sandi GrantAdrian & Sue, I’m so sorry Adrian. I know you really looked up to your Dad and have so many good stories and memories of your adventures with him. I’m know he will be missed by you, Sue & the boys. I never met him, but you spoke so highly of him so often, that I felt like I knew him. I especially like the story of his landscaping at Egerton Beach! I can tell you had a very special relationship. Lots of love from Peter & Sandi
