My grandmother Isabel Jessie Melrose Keane, your sister, talked about you to me. She gave me a bracelet you sent home to her in New Zealand from Crete. I now have sons of my own, age 28, 26 and 18 and the loss to your family would have been heartbreaking. I remember you every Anzac Day and have read stories about how terrible it was in Crete and feel very sad to think of what you went through. Thank you for your sacrifice. We will never forget you. I hope one day to come to the Suda Cemetery. I named my daughter after your mother, Emma.
