Henry Haszler shared

We feel privileged to have known Richard Gillespie. We welcomed Richard’s move to Australia and regret that his time with us was so unexpectedly short. Richard was a true gentleman, his life experience had made him wise in many things and something of a raconteur. Henry enjoyed receiving Richard’s internet jokes and in memory of many a shared good laugh we offer the following which arrived on about 4 December 2016:

An English professor wrote the words: “A woman without her man is nothing” on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly.
All the MALES in the class wrote: “A woman, without her man, is nothing.”
All the FEMALES in the class wrote: “A woman: without her, man is nothing.”
(Punctuation is powerful)

We offer our condolences to all of Richard’s immediate and extended family.

Henry, Wendy, Charles and Rosie Haszler, Eltham, 27 January 2017
