I am both idealist and realist. For there is no point in ideals if they cannot be realised.

Opa

16 July 2003

Last night, my Opa (grandfather in German) passed away peacefully during th night. Alfred Gordon (born Auerbach, name changed during move to England as a German-Jew refugee during the war) was a great and loving man who was a fantastic grandfather to me during my childhood. Always offering to help, for example with a lift to school if I missed the bus, or just generally being kind. Unfortuntely, his latter years were hampered by anxiety, but the real Opa still shone through.

My love and thoughts go out to Oma (my gran) who cared for him so much for so many years.
