Dear all,

Thank you so much for your wonderful submissions. I’m hoping to submit 
things for print in the next couple of days so if you could please send 
me any last submissions at the latest by 11:59 CEST - Monday 21st 
September if you would like your pictures to be included in a physical 
photo album, that would be wonderful.

There will also be an online memorial site where it will be possible to 
post messages and pictures on an ongoing basis but that is still under 

In the meanwhile, if anyone would like to contribute to the site itself, 
please contact Fin as per his message here:


Thank you all for all of your messages so far, it has been wonderful 
looking through them and remembering,
