Testaments to the qualities of Peter Vaughan, the HE father killed in a motorbike accident on Tuesday this week, continue to accrue.
Throughout the HE gathering yesterday, people spoke of his kindness, his quick thinking, his playfulness, his ability to make people feel good about themselves, his ability to inspire both adults and children.
We would love to tell him how well the gathering went. How much the children relished the company of all who were there. How vigorously they generated their own interests, followed them through with energy, love and enthusiasm, how they co-operated together, across ages and genders, how they played in the sun until late into the evening when we finally bump started the last car.
He is so badly missed and his family is in our thoughts.
