A story for Dad and me— John William Jones



My father died on Australia Day, the 26th January 1999. I never want to say goodbye to the rich values and lessons that my father taught me about life. He taught me about our duty to reach out to others, especially those less able or in need. In his public life, he taught me about fairness, fair play and respect for all people, regardless of race or creed. I want to acknowledge the profound influence that my Dad has had on the man I am today. Through my relationship with my father I have come to understand the complexities and stresses that people live through, and perhaps most of all, I have learnt about forgiveness.
