My brother Riessen told all of his friends and family at his 40th birthday that he was going to train as a 'Samaritan'. He wanted to feel that he was giving something back to his communtiy, as he had so many opportunites and wanted to say 'Thank-you' for them to help people that had not been as fortunate as himself. He volunteers at all different times which means he leaves family events early to get up for shifts at 6.00am and attends friends parties late as he works shifts at the weekend.
He does all of this whilst working full-time as a director in his job where he is respected by everyone who meets him.
He is highly regarded by all his friends as the person to go to when anyone wants to discuss anything and always gives fantastic advice which is why no-one who has met him has ever disliked him!
His is a fantastic dad to his two daughters which he learnt from our own dad but he has improved upon which I never thought possible.....
I know people wish they had the relationship I have with Riessen which is why I am extremely proud to call him my brother the 'Golden Child' as he has always been known. CR
