Dear Gillian,

My warmest wishes to you and the family at Dad’s passing. I know how you feel since I am alone in my family and have also lost all my close friends. On the other hand, we have memories to visit us and of course they would want us to relive these.

I met your parents in Manchester in 1956 during my visit for an introduction to the cancer centre. At that time I struck a friendship with Dad and he invited me to join him in Vancouver. I would have accepted only that my Joan was nine months pregnant with James, and travel at that time would have been a strain.

However, since then we have had two stays with your Mother and Father, and we have enjoyed both occasions. Robert, plus others, family and friends have also been their guests. We have been very grateful for their friendship and hospitality.

I fondly remember Dad’s amazement at having a hot-tub at our home in Sydney on a hot day!

My kindest thoughts,

Bill Woods
Sydney, Australia

A lifelong friend to my father and all my family.
Dad met George in the 1950s, in Manchester UK and remained in close contact through the next 70 years.
An enduring friendship formed through their mutual bond of medicine and oncology.
Visits to Australian and Canada were not as frequent as each would have liked. The first Christmas card was always from the 'The Goodmans' i November which reminded us they were thinking of us all.
My three sons will all miss George's hospitality, his warmth and the odd glass of whiskey he shared with them.
Trips to Whistler now past Westridge Avenue are sad now..... because great friends have now gone.
But in time the warm and happy memories will remain.
Goodbye George, a true gentleman and great friend to us all.
