    Dear Wendy and Mark, Rick and Helen and families,
    I am so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. Mr. Shrieves was a lovely man and I was glad to have known both of your parents
    while growing up.
    My condolences to you all,

    Wendy & Mark, Rick & Helen and your families,
    My condolences to you all.
    Some of my favourite memories are from my visits in Nelson, I always felt welcomed. The wine glass was always full, the pool and hot tub always ready, and the best turkey ever done on the barbecue! Oh, and our wedding cake! After 30 years, the cake I kept is still consumable! I think there was more rum than fruit! His sage advice to me was to love what you do, enjoy your passion and most of all be the happiest that you can be.
    He gave us lots to remember.
