George, the Colonel.
It is with great sadness that I have to add our lovely Colonel to the blog. This page is dedicated to him. He was such a wonderful spirit, always a smile and a little chat about apricot kernels which is how he got his name. George was one of the first people to attend our local support group. The South West Mesothelioma Support Group was formed a year ago if my memory serves me right. George was there every week, supporting other patients and lifting the spirits of any new members. He made a great friend in Richard Clarke from the national asbestos helpline who supported George with phone calls when he didn't get to the meetings.
Richard paid tribute to our wonderful George, "My friend, a true gentleman, a mans man, honest, kind and valiant. Centre Forward Harris will be sadly missed but not forgotten".
My heart goes out to Ann, George's wife and their family. He will be greatly missed at our groups.
George will be celebrated on Wednesday 28th November at 10:30, Weston Mill cemetery, Plymouth.
Love and strength are sent to the family from all the warriors. x x x
