Brian Tovey Memorial Service
Brian was Director of GCHQ and had a distinguished career there, but I knew him afterwards when he had retired since he was a neighbour of some close friends. A charming and intelligent man, he also very kindly took my Daughter and her close friend his god-daughter to Florence and gave her some amazing insights into Renaissance Art
Hearing tributes from colleagues and friends from various walks of life was delightful - each of them giving insights into a facet of his life.
His final project was to write a book on Filippo Baldinucci (1624-97) a late-renaissance art historian and artist, which he completed before he died at the end of last year.
May he rest in peace and rise in GLORY!
