There are too many happy memories to recount here, it was great to serve along side you and you'll not be forgotten. Both our thoughts are with you, Deni and the family. We'll keep you and the family at fore front of our prayers and rest assured your family will still be there after you have gone. With deep respect and can I say it? brotherly love from one Hussar to another.

Greetings to all you glorious Hawks,
your best wishes , condolences and memories were of great comfort to Denny and I .To have real friends and comrades out there makes the tragedy easier to accept.
Thank you once again from the bottom of our hearts

One of the main things I think about when I think about you, is your sense of humour and the fact that you were always smiling.
Doris will never forget the Ramnugger when you found out she liked Baileys and went to the bar to get her a drink, the look on her face was a picture when you came back with a bottle for each of you
Try to keep the smile and know that our thoughts are with you all at this difficult time.
Regards sir

Message from Denny:
Thank you for your sincere wishes, and hope you had a joyful holiday season with your family. Brian has an appointment with the Doctors next week where some final decisions will be made. Have a great New Year.

Sincere greetings to all Hawks who very kindly posted their sentiments on the websites concerning my health problems.
Latest sitreps
from the witchdoctors indicate that Chemo is extending my quality of life a little ,but not quantity.
Hey ho, !!we just crack on in achieving as many forecast of events for Noah's as is possible.

Having spent a long Time as a Hawk, I have amassed much Hawk memorabilia in my"holy of holy" study, and after processing immediate family requests, it is my wish to carry out an internal Noahs and external auction, with a ALL PROCEEDS going into the Noah's Arc funds to offset future functions

Next week Bob and other members of your committee will commence to catalog /process the items, be sure to keep a'n eye on Noah's websites for details

Fond regards to you all
Drac

What a great idea, I for one shall be sure to look in. While I am not a collector of anything that can collect dust I simply love anything 'sharp' so if you have anything that's got a point or an edge, I shall be bidding.

I also want to say that it's a great way to keep things 'within the larger family' and would be a very special memo of a very special person to just so many of us !

Let us hope that the quality of life, that the doctors are able to provide, allows you to laugh without hurting.

Best regards send Bill & Rahi Bentley
