Nigel, Winsome, Doreen and Family,

Romans 12:15 instructs us to” Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn”, today we mourn with each of you with heartfelt sadness as your father has gone to his eternal rest.

I am grateful to have known both your father and mother, they both had a gentleness and kindness that was welcoming and that in itself leaves a precious legacy, in and through their family and, in the hearts and minds of those who had the privilege to know them.

We hold his memory dear and will miss receiving his Christmas card s that he so lovingly created each year.

We mourn for your loss and pray for your peace.

Love John, Jennifer and Jillian
