    Very sorry to learn of Drew’s passing. It seems a long time ago now, when we all knew each other at Knox, but I remember Drew vividly. Not least because of his articulate objections to the late night revelries of his near neighbours. We know who we are, and we were the better for knowing him. God rest him. God bless his family and all who miss him.

    Very sad, although also somewhat relieved, to hear of Drew’s passing. I know that the last months were not easy for him or for his family for whom we pray. May he be at peace.
