Through Thick & Thin

By Rufino Torres



Title:              Through Thick And Thin

Author:          Rufino Torres


Whilst it was a challenge to draw out the details of Rufino’s life journey, it was an exciting surprise to hear early stories of meeting his wife, the love of his life. To get a small glimpse into the love and devotion they share was a heartwarming inspiration, and I was pleased that Rufino’s creative flair was captured with the inclusion of his favourite hand drawn architectural designs and abstract paintings. A man of great creativity and humour I was honoured to hear about his early life in the Philippines, coming to Australia and family life.

With the inclusion of moving personal tributes, it was a privilege to explore the fullness of his life which inspired his chosen title, “Through Thick & Thin.”
