Condolences from The Howes Family.

Just someone from the very best of times.says:

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

Fair thee well David, fair thee well.

So sad to hear of David’s passing. He was my first boyfriend when I was 15 & he was 14. He was always a great guy and I am so glad that he found an amazing lady in Vicky and had a beautiful family. He will be missed by many. My condolences to Vicky& family and to my dear Robyn. Love Marlene
