I forgot to mention my gratitude towards Ms. Viv Doolan for all her support and time on my son throughout his studies in Bedford School. She did a lot for us as being his guardian in attending parents' meetings; sending me information on his studies; and also checking on him from time to time. The feeling is just like having your own family member there looking after Charles. Thank you very much.
