I owe Daniel Dumont deep gratitude for all his kindness and help to me and in particular during the Annual ECMC Meetings in Rome 2009, & Frankfurt 2010.
The truth is I should not have gone to Rome as prior to leaving home I didn`t feel very well but decided none the less to attend the ECMC Meeting. Shortly after arriving in Rome I gradually felt worse and Daniel arranged for me to have a medical check with the result that it was found I had a severe attack of Shingles. Daniel persuaded me to cut my stay in Rome short, helping me to obtain an early Flight home.
The following year in Frankfurt again soon after I landed, I had an emergency call to say that my Mother was very seriously ill in Hospital. Once again Daniel was superb in his support organising my travel back to the United Kingdom literally within hours of me arriving in Frankfurt.
For me Daniel was a `Gentle Giant`.
