I am one of Uncle Carl's neices', Keith Anthony Lawson was my Dad, he passed on March 29th 2012 aged 82. I see from Uncle Carl's photo he and Dad were very much alike in appearances.
Unfortunately I have no Family Contact and last saw Uncle Carl over 42 years ago.

I saw today by chance reading that his Baby Brother my Uncle Ruddy (Rudyard) aged 80 Passed in June this year.

May they all be at Peace with Mum (Grandma) (Gladys) Winona and Dad (Grandpa) Bryan Theophilus Lawson.

Carlene, Chrissyanne, Jae and Hannah, I am so sorry for your loss. It has been one year since I lost my own dad and it is never easy, but eventually the wonderful memories make you smile more often than cry. Cherish those memories. You are his legacy.
