    Oh Norma, I was always going to send a nice get well card off to him, and of course, it did not get done! Now he is with Les in their heavenly mansion, and hopefully still smiling! He had such a warm and wonderful smile; I will miss him and you! May God be with you and comfort you with His loving care! God’s Love and My Love,

    I was so saddened to hear of your loss, I didn’t know your husband well, only from his helping at the golf course. I do know that he was highly thought of by everyone at St Andrews, and always had a big smile for everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    Please accept my deepest sympathy.
