Last Saturday, Gloria Harrison and her family joined us at the Project Shed to share a meal with the members and volunteers of Surfers Sunrise.  As reported previously, Bob had been a Charter Member of our club, commencing in 1987.  See full details in the Download Section and the Photo Album on the right. Following President Jo Winwood's announcement that the club will make a donation of $500.00 in memory of Bob to The Rotary Foundation's Polio Plus fund (which will be tripled by the pledge of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to donate $2.00 for every $1.00 from Rotary), your Editor was privileged to say a few words on behalf of the members and volunteers. A number of people asked me about the poem I finished off with (by that great master, 'Anon'), which I feel suits Bob to a tee.  So here it is:
Miss me – but let me go  (Anon)
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul let free?
Miss me a little – but no too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me – but let me go.
For this journey that we all must take
And each must go alone
It’s all part of the Master’s plan
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go the the friends we know
And busy your sorrows on doing good deeds
Miss me – but let me go.
