    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of May, and equally sorry not to have been able to attend her service. As District Governor in 2007/2008, Lion May was my secretary and right hand. She managed to keep me on the “ straight and narrow”, with all my paperwork. My late wife Marg used to introduce Lion May as the other “Lady in my life” for the year.
    You will be extremely missed.

    When we first met you told me that you believed angels had been watching over me. I believe you were that angel, and I am so very thankful for your presence in my life. Your strength and selflessness have been a blessing that I will be forever grateful for.
