Christopher Alan York Hewson
Sunrise – 7th October 1946

We are all travelers in the wilderness of the world, and the best that we can find in our travels is an honest friend. (Robert Louis Stevenson)
It is with heartfelt gratitude that we acknowledge our families and friends for your condolences and extension of sympathy for our family for the loss of our father, loving partner and a best friend to all the hashers; Christopher Alan York Hewson also known as Shafter or Drafter by old hashers.
Thank you for your prayers, condolences, messages of sympathy, your comforting company, your humor when at times we feel as if we are alone and assistance; be it financial or in kind; we thank you for your compassion and generosity.
We thank you especially for all the work, time and monetary contributions that you all put in to build his final resting place at Vailele Cemetery and to help us with his funeral arrangements. Please know that it has meant a lot to me and the family.
Faafetai, faafetai faafetai tele lava.
Perhaps you sent a lovely card; or sat quietly in a chair
Perhaps you sent a floral piece; if so we saw it there
Perhaps you spoke; the kindest words as any friend could say
Perhaps you were not there at all; just thought of us that day
Whatever you did to console our hearts
We thank you so much; whatever the part.
We are now back in Auckland and we look forward to seeing you all next time.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and may we also take this opportunity to wish you all hash men and meres of the Apia Hash House Harriers back home and overseas a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2009.
Flo (Sili), CJ and Anesi
