Yesterday, I posted about an elderly gentleman who had wandered away from the nursing home here in Lion's Head on Saturday. Mnay of you have emailed me to say you were sending prayers his way for his rescue, and wanted to know when they found him. Sadly his body was found last night very close to the Home.
This has shaken this little village to the core. Everyone here knew him and his family. He grew up here. In a small community like this the fire and rescue department is mostly a volunteer one. For the entire weekend they joined with the Provincial Police, helicopters, police dogs and hundreds of locals to search for him. It was truly a community in action and brought out the absolute best in people. A few hundred people missed out on their own Father's Day here to find this Father. His name was Clayton.
