I am sad to bring you the news that our loving Dad and Friend passed away from this life peacefully Wednesday morning (Aug 6th). He is now in the hands of our Lord and with his darling Margaret.
The last few weeks have been very difficult for Dad as it became increasingly hard for him to breath. He smiled regularly over the last two days, showing that he was accepting and at peace with the inevitable.
There will be a service to celebrate Dad’s life this Saturday August 9th at St Stephen’s Church on Mt Newton Crossroad.
May God Bless and Keep his Soul.
