  24. Tony , Mark , Steve and families , Heaven will be enriched by the presence of your champion Dad , he was one honourable, honest champion bloke , I will treasure and value having known him forever . In life one meets many people but your Dad topped the pinnacle of the world because men of his calibre are a rare commodity. May the good Lord give you all strength at this time as you reflect today not only on your Dads life but the memories of your beautiful mother’s as they rest eternally together. Stay strong , walk proud as that is what your Mother and Dad would want you to do . Love and prayers , Vaughan Johnson.
