    Very Handsome!
    A man who looks to exude
    control under stress,
    comfort under duress
    and humour of the fearless!
    Someone you respect?
    B R A V O !!!

  • Yeah, he certainly was a ‘Very Handsome’ boss! We missed him around the station, but still catch up with him occasionally.

  • He was very surprised and very happy when the painting was presented to him at his retirement dinner. ’Twas a bit of a tear jerky occasion!
