Dear Cardinal Cormac
It was my joy to act as your deacon on many occasions in Westminster Cathedral (prior to my move to the Highlands six months ago). I was of course a Southwark Deacon, but always looked to you as my Shepherd! I always felt relaxed and at ease in your company.
You always gave me the impression that you were pleased to see me. I remember well on Easter Sunday 2008 (when it snowed in London) reminding you about the 'hot water bottle under your vestments story' from your days in Arundal and Brighton. What a surprise I got when you started your homily at the 10.30 am Mass with the story!
I wish you every happiness and blessing in your well-deserved retirement in Chiswick. I consider it a privilege and blessing to have known you, and should you ever want to visit the Scottish Highlands, you will be more than welcome. I would however recommend a hot water bottle if you come in winter!
