There are heroes who walk among us, never seeking thanks or praise.

They never ask for recognition for their thoughtful caring ways.

Protecting, serving, a regular shift, his brand new wife at home.

No one thought so much wickedness could lurk among our own.

This isn’t us, our hearts are heavy, we want to tell you this…

Our community joins together now to say that you are missed.

To your wife, and to your family,

Our nation sends you love.

And we offer to your colleagues – our respect, our trust and hope.

We’ve learned you were a happy chap, the most selfless man by far,

So Andrew Harper, we’d like to thank you for the hero that you are.
