A special thank you to Dave Jarrett and Steve Stanway; two of Zoltan’s former students for their devoted friendship, attention and care shown to both Zoltan and Teresa in these last few weeks. A heartfelt thank you to my dear friend Chris Watling for her unwavering years of friendship, but most importantly for introducing me to Zoltan all those years ago.
