  15. Big D
    Such a sad loss to your community.
    Our thoughts are with Danusha and the Stringbuster family.
    I loved our chats in the garden at the Uni.
    You always had time for a smiley chat, but when that beautiful deep voice got on stage it was lights on, and we were yours.
    We cherish your memory because life
    Has taken, our Sunshine, away.

    Stuck and Carolyn
