Ian Woff, speaking
at Kit's funeral
I wish to speak very briefly,
and presume to speak for those of us who went to
secondary school with Kit at ERA.
I am fortunate to have gone to school
with Kit for five years at ERA. ERA was an important
part of Kit's life, as it was for all of us, and
Kit was a most important part in the life of the
school. Nobody who attended ERA from the beginning
could think of the place without thinking of Kit,
so much was his personality part of our school.
Many of us were fortunate to have
kept our friendship of Kit beyond school, and although
friends rarely see as much of each other as they
used to after leaving school, a wonderful part of
friendship with Kit was that the relationship was
always maintained with ease and confidence. Kit's
personal characteristics of honesty, integrity and
caring concern were constant, and underlay the constant
nature of his friendship.
Kit was a friend who was always there.
His passing leaves us poorer, but we can be thankful
for the many fine memories and for the significance
he has had in our lives.

Woff and Leigh Taylor at Era in 1975
