Sad day yesterday - John Hawley's funeral. Not much to say really - very sad affair, but good to see so many University staff, both past and present, there.

Lots of memories of him were swapped - including his habit of juggling coins in his pocket, his colourful language probably picked up from the building sites he worked on when he was an engineer, his ever open door and overflowing bowl of sweets, his awful Big Mouth Billy Bass fish which annoyed us so much, but amused him no end. It was a fitting send off to a wonderful man.
