Funeral Notice


  1. Just read about Colin online. I worked with him at WIAE from about 1976 to 1980 when I left for Queensland. He helped take my mother’s possessions to Salvation Army Family store in 2011. It was good to see him again, but sad to see his state of health. We got on very well. Belated condolences to all his family.
