The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Appreciation For George Ritchie By Evan S Ritchie

George Ritchie was my dear brother. To his family he was known as Oor Dod. He was the kindest man I ever knew. He was my big brother. As a child, as a teenager & as a man he was my mentor & my rock & I will miss him very much.
He was a very special man, I loved him very much. He lived his tough life constantly thinking of others & trying to keep his whole huge family (wife, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, cousins) altogether with love & thoughfullness.
Yes George, oor Dod was our rock.
He now rests in peace beside his beloved mother sheltered lovingly here in Bonny Scotland.
George I salute you & will miss you till the day I meet you again in a better place.
Your loving brother Evan
