The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Appreciation For Ralph H.M Yates By Anthony Yates

My dad.
What can I say about my dad, he was so many things to me and I am sure to my brothers and sisters.
My dad was one of those hard working dads that always got his way as long as Mum agreed. His words were law in our house but he supported us in our endeavours and certainly encouraged us when we needed it. We loved him but at times we also hated him when we didn’t get what we wanted, but he was always there to help when asked.
We, and I speak for my sister and brothers, are proud to say this one thing: Of all that he was – He was our Dad.
