A last goodbye, for a Tiger

Dugald Jellie went to the funeral of Tiger fan Carolyn Gaunt. Here is his story.

[Dugald is a very talented writer with a tremendous respect and affection for people. He has a keen ear and eye and a lovely sense of perspective on things – even if he is Tiger-mad. His stories are published on his website tigertigerburningbright.com.au which has a strong Tiger following. This year he will also be publishing stories here at the Almanac. So it’s a big welcome from me – JTH]
