We are sad to report that Adrian Smith, a long-standing member of Church Action on Poverty’s Council of management, passed away recently. Rose Tyrrell, who served as a trustee alongside Adrian, wrote this memorial for him.
In Memory of an amazing friend and colleague
Six words to describe Adrian:
This is how we see Adrian, he was also loving and caring and the best friend anyone could have.
He is going to be missed so much, by family I am sure,
Friends I am certain,
By colleagues most definitely.
He always know when I was not well and would keep on at me to get seen to by the hospital without regard for himself.
His faith was strong and he always wanted social justice for the poorer in society.
Hence his many years with Church Action on Poverty.
Farewell our friend, you leave us broken hearted but our hearts will mend in time.
We love you and will never forget you.
Goodbye, God take you in his loving arms to live your eternal life in peace and love. Amen
