  19. A wonderful man, one of nature’s gentlemen. Phillip, Don, Dorothy & Val and later their partners and children were always very special to our family. My mother always said what a great credit they were to Aunty Jean who was a single mother during hard years after Uncle Ted died when the family were so young. In God’s care.
