In Memory of Deiter

Standard

In memory of a wonderful county ranger who was an important force behind some wonderful events at the local Forrest or beach, there was an event organised in his name.

It was important to me that the children and I attend, to give our last respects to this lovely man who died suddenly in his sleep just days before Christmas 2012, leaving behind a young daughter and a baby son.
I was not surprised but very happy to see quite so many people on such a cold and rainy day.

it even resembled his fantastic smile.
The children, as always with Deiter, were encouraged to add their part.

It was lovely to hear a bit more about Deiter, surrounded by so many who possibly knew him far more than I.
