I just cannot imagine life at Mercer without Chris. He has been such a wonderful colleague and friend. There are countless, countless times that I have thought “must talk to Chris about that”.. And he always delivered. Sometimes a little late (literally, as he worked so late into the evening), but always spot on. Always calm, thoughful and with great insight. Added to that, I think he spent more time in Cornwall, my home county, than me. In fact, even just a couple of weeks ago, I was trying to persuade him to pop in and do my father’s cleaning for him when he next visited. He said Thomas would be really happy to do that ( don’t worry, Thomas, I won’t hold you to that..).
Every time I watch the sea in Cornwall, I will think of Chris and know that he is there in spirit. Lots of love to all the family and know we are thinking of you. Sarah xx
