    This website was found by a long known friend of my husband and Mr. Graham sent it to me.
    Gordon Dewhirst my loving and devoted husband passed away May 7th this year. I sensed his stay at Fairbridge was mostly positive. I understood he had a kind housemother with whom he kept in touch until she died. Gordon had a successful career specialising in public policy and rose to the position of Assistant Deputy Minister in the Foreign Review Agency Canada. For all his accomplishments his Family was his greatest joy. Needles to see we miss his calm and prudent judgement, his kindness and sense of fun. Regards, Josefine Dewhirst
