I was blessed to work for John @ Mason-Neilan in Norwood, in the early 60's.
John was always a gentleman, never demanding and always willing to share his Mass Maritime memories. Aware of his goodness I believe he sailed straight into the arms of his Lord.
Love and blessings to all. Judy Salie Murray
