In eternal memory of a Scottish patriot
Sir David Robertson Ross
(* 28.02.1958 in Giffnock/Renfrewshire + 02.01.2010 in East Kilbride)
"Sorry, can't stop, I have a country to free." (Sir David)
Today I have lost a true friend, Scotland has lost one of her finest sons. He was a giant of a man in so many more ways than his physical stature. No man loved his country more and he made sure everybody knew it with an incredible passion for both its history and its future. I feel humble and priveleged to have been a part of his life and to have been asked to be part of William Wallace's funeral service in 2005. I hope he knew just how much it meant to every one of us there that day.
He had so much more he wanted to do, so many plans. We can never replace his presence, knowledge and friendship but through his books, words and actions he left a legacy that continues to inspire thousands of people to acknowledge who we are as a nation and to share in his dreams. It now falls on us to carry these dreams forward.
Sleep well Big Davie - we will not let you down. (by Ted Christopher)
