Mr Hall said he was relieved it was finished because he broke his hip roller-blading five years ago. </p> <p> &quot;Roller-blading was a way to forget the loneliness of life,&quot; Mr Hall said. </p></blockquote> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="locality">Sans Souci</span>, <span class="region">New South Wales</span> <div class="country-name">Australia</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="-33.990698">33° 59' 26.5128" S</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="151.133165">151° 7' 59.394" E</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=%2C+Sans+Souci%2C+NSW%2C+%2C+au" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=&amp;csz=Sans+Souci%2C+NSW&amp;country=au" target="_blank">Yahoo!
