In the last year I have lost two men who meant a great deal to me. Shelley Ryde was my first supervisor in an admin role for Ross Youngs. He was a father figure and even after I left work he was always there for me.
Roy George was our family solicitor, he dealt with everything when we settled in the UK, he helped us buy our houses over the years and even after he retired I kept in touch with him. He was the first person to encourage me to start painting eight years ago. I want to ring him and tell my art news and I know he's not there anymore and it feels like a part of me is missing.
Rest in peace Shelley and Roy, you were both golden guys.
