Lest we forget

Hi Ray

Peter passed away peaceful today at 4.30pm at home. He had been ill for some time. As Peter would say himself he had a good innings and enjoy excellent health  except for the last few years. He would have been 88 next month.

It was his wish that the funeral be private. But early next year I plan to have a celebration event of his life with family and friends.

Best regards

Denise Rothwell
