We would sincerely like to say a huge thank you to the city of Albany for all that everyone has done to honour the life of Harold, our dad, granddad, great-granddad and great-great-granddad.

A special thank you to Morris and Gwen Blake for being close and dear friends. We don't know what he would have done without you, and all of the staff past and present from Dylans on the Terrace. Thank you for all the support that you gave him to make his life so much happier.

Thank you to Iris Thomas for being a very close and dear friend.

Thank you, Clarence Estate, for taking such good care of him in the last year, and Bethany Funeral Home for helping us through this difficult time.

St John's Anglican Church — the ringing of the bells 103 times just left us speechless. Thank you to the police that stood to attention in York Street and for the escort vehicle.

To the sole bagpiper — you were truly amazing.

Thank you to the RSL for its contribution, and the Riley Club of WA.

Last of all, thank you to the people who all came out and paid their respects.

Please excuse us if we have forgotten anyone.

The family of the late Harold David Martin.
