Murray, you are supposed to look them in the eyes, not the chest!
Once again, congratulations Murray. Does this mean we have to bow down to you?

For those interested, here is a link to the government website with the "official" list of those receiving this and other honors. Either search the page for "Murray Willis" or just scan down about 3/4's of the way down and it is alphabetical below the heading "THE QUEEN'S SERVICE MEDAL FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE"

It was a huge battle as Phil so well describes.
My dear wife Jan had to deal with major breast cancer and I a stroke, both aliments brought about by stress during the fight.
Mike, Ron, John, Tino, Gordon, Tracie, Frank, Dough, all of you guys and girls have met us and know that we are just simple people that took on the establishment and won.
With out friends and supporters like you we would not have been able to succeed.
Some have asked what gave me the fight. Read about the Scottish martyer George Wishart. Burnt at the stake in 1547, I am a direct blood line decendant of him. He claimed that the Pope was not "God on earth" and paid with his life. My sacrifice was nothing.
Thanks for being so kind
Love to you all,
M & J
