Colin…you gave me many happy years of friendship and love. 
We had a wonderful life of adventure and worldwide travel which I will never forget.
You are now free of pain, to roam the land and go duck shooting and fishing forever.
Watching sport will never be the same without you explaining the rules so I could understand.
‘When the shades of evening creep, Sound and safely may he sleep’
