Anthony William Godfrey The Godfrey family would like to thank you for your love and support at this time and warmly invite you for refreshments following the send-off.

Nothing can match all the pleasures I’ve had Salt spray on my face - there’s no need to be sad. I’ve loved every hour of it, make no mistake The troubles of life left behind in my wake.

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

So, up with the mainsail! I’ve called it a day, And now on the breeze I will sail away. No need for a Navman, like those fancy new cars; On my final voyage I’ll steer by the stars. - Norm Murray
