Ron and Sue Bates

I don't know how many of you have read my travel diary
Letters from Bucharest
but I'm assuming that it's a lot of you, since it inexplicably remains one of the most popular things on my web page.

I heard yesterday that Sue Bates has followed her husband, Ron, into that dark night after twenty selfless years helping the orphan population of Romania's largest city. The were missionaries, guided by their religion, but driven by a desire to help people lead better lives. They were two of the most extraordinary people I've ever met. I hope they found what they were looking for and hopefully some of what was good in them will linger on in all of those who met them, me included.

Goodbye Mamma sue.
