By now most of you have probably read of the death of Andy Harkness in yesterday’s newspaper. Andy has been a personal friend of Nancy & I for nearly 40 years and was the cornerstone of our Fund Raising team which meets every Tuesday morning here in our dining room. Andy was to have been on the CCAT agenda at our next Board of Directors meeting to give the “update”. Andy has provided rock solid guidance and direction all along the way. When we sit down again tomorrow morning for our weekly meeting there will be an empty chair between Nancy & I – - – - and I expect it will remain empty for a very long time to come. This is a very sad time for Nancy & I personally and for our collective efforts here in Cheshire.
