I was very pleased to have been part of a memorial event for Rod Craig. This was held at Shire Hall on Wednesday for colleagues and friends from the council and other partner organisations.
It was informal and had a happy rather than sad feel to it. Everyone seemed content to be celebrating the life of Rod rather than dwelling on the loss.
Mark Lloyd and I both paid tribute to Rod, Mark as always summing up so perfectly. But more importantly there were a number of people who, without any preparation, spoke from the heart. A true reflection on how he was held in high esteem by all.
Rod, rest in peace.
