Fare thee well my brother!
our friendship has remained steadfast and unshakeable from our days at Wesley Hall Boys' School in the late 1940s until your unexpected passing. This is a clear indication that through all the changing scenes of life, true friendships can ad will survive.
as we were taught at Combermere in Roebuck Steet in the 1950s : Verae amicitiae sempiturnae sunt.
So long and safe traveling.
We will meet again in the sweet bye and bye.
