"May their names live on for always..."

The BDA memorial event was truly memorial. Seeing all the names and faces on screen brought back memories of my times with the BDDA as delegate to the conferences and congresses that I attended. Those people were always there at any BDDA event, giving their time to the Deaf community. May their names live on for always.

"Never forgetting you all..."

Thanks to 'British Deaf and Dumb Association' for wonderful 125 years with those who supported to continue the strength of our British Sign Language and education with Deaf children to preserve and stay with us into next generation. May I add my love and thanks to people I knew them, commitment with BDA including my dearest Dad, Kenneth Simmonds as one of BDA South East Regional committee. Never forgetting you all. 

Tight hugs and love,
