Didn't know what it was like to have a real Dad - Legacy

27 April 2013

Raymond, Chain Valley Bay NSW

My Dad went to Malaya when me and my twin brother were 3 months old. He was killed in action in the January 1942, so I had no idea about a dad but was shown pictures and told about him when we were older and could understand.
Legacy to us was a great help in medical, dental and general well being and helped Mum in many ways with advice and support when difficulties arose.
Legacy had a gym at Legacy House in Sydney for our fitness with all the medical checks by wonderful doctors, mostly specialist and dentist, who gave their time freely to help us. There were times we needed hospitalization and are so grateful when we think back of the care they gave us. We had wonderful camps and experiences flying to Canberra (my first experience of flying and certainly a worrying time for Mum seeing her little boys taking off). The Camps and the Legatees gave us so much I could never really repay but try and do my bit when the appeal comes round. THANK YOU LEGACY!
When I was small I didn't understand but I certainly do now and understand the wonderful work they did and still do. God bless them.
