As a teen, in Hertfordshire, during the early to mid 1970’s, I shared some great times with special friends in Welwyn, including Tony, Jen, Dave, Simon, Phil, John, Richard, Jeanette, Sharon, and Ian “The Beard”. Few rules applied back then. Born to succeed, we were the immortals; beautiful, long haired, energetic, rock steady, stone free…. immaculate. Later, my life and schooling shifted to London. New connections evolved with other North Americans, studying abroad. Ian sometimes joined me, and hung out with these new pals. His warm and friendly personality allowed him to move easily between different groups of people and be readily accepted. We last spoke on the eve of the millennium, 1999 into 2000. The New Year’s celebration at the Moyes' home, while mid afternoon here in California, was in full swing near midnight in WGC. What a blast, again hanging out with Ian, Sharon, and many of the old crowd! A very special and memorable moment you bet. Totally cool. “Beard”, my friend, I will always remember your intelligent optimism, friendly smile, and impressive achievements. I continue to honor your memory. Love to you and your family… Sharon, William, and Laura, -- Andrew Smith -- Los Angeles, CA, USA
