I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the very kind words,condolences and offers of support which you offered to myself and my family. Lee, Natalie and I know that we have lost a wonderful Husband and Father, but I was amazed at the number of friends who thought the same and turned up to see this Great Hussar off on his last March. He would have loved the send off you all gave him, and the only thing missing was his beloved JCB ! Now it is down to Natalie and myself to keep the Drac flag flying and to see you all again next year at NOAHS.

Was a privilege to have attended and to say goodbye to a legend Denny and absolutely delighted to know that the legend will live on in the future. My best wishes to yourself lee and Natalie.

Dear Denny, Natalie & Lee,

be assured that many who could not attend the funeral of our much respected friend Brian, DRAC Draper were with you in spirit. I for one would very much like to have been there to see Brian off and to meet other old friends who I know were in attendance, but circumstances simply did not permit.

I would recommend people to read a small booklet by Richard Bach - There's no such place as far away, a short story which explains how time and distance mean nothing, because friends are only a thought away.

I look forward to reading your input which will keep Brians memory fresh in our fading memories.
