David was a key person in both of our lives. Along with Steph, he supported Dave in getting back to work following his leg amputation. This enabled Dave to have some much needed self-worth and have a purpose again. Through Fleur he found out that I was getting my book-keeping qualifications and as Stagecoach hadn’t quite established an accounts department at that time, after meeting with him he offered me the job – I was a young, single parent trying to get on in the big bad world. He didn’t hand anything to either of us, he challenged whether we could do the job required whilst at the same time, supporting our circumstances we found ourselves in. Both of us stayed with our Stagecoach family and I think that right there, speaks volumes. David, Sir, taken far too soon with still so much to give. Thank you for looking after Joan throughout lockdown. Sending Dee and her family the biggest hugs and love at this difficult time.
