Dear Laura, Alex and Joe,
I still find it difficult to believe that the work colleague and friend I have sat next to for the last five years is not going to be there when I return to the office. As a result of my proximity to Gareth in the office I have shared in his delight when receiving news such as exam results, passing driving tests and work success. He was so devoted to you all and I love him for that amongst his many other qualities as a gentleman. It was so good to see you both at my 50th rocking along to Mia and the Blackhawks and on the Monday we joked about doing a road trip to Ulverston visiting the Laurel and Hardy museum with that as our soundtrack.
Something died in my soul the day you left us Gareth but I will carry my love for you as a friend on that road journey “para siempre amigo”
