Marlene, Norman, Lorraine and their families would like to thank you very much for the cards, flowers, and kind messages received following the death of Colin. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the care and support Colin received from Maxwell Lifecare. To the doctors and nurses at Wairau Hospital who cared for Colin, thank you; we are grateful for your support. To his taxi family, his sailing and his friends at the Crow Tavern, thank you for the many ways you helped make the last years of Colin’s life some of his best. We would also like to thank Sowman’s for their guidance and in helping bring everything together. He would have loved his wee send off and we certainly appreciated your support during this sad time.
