Dad to Island ringers Rodney and brother Reverend Barry, Granddad to Nita, Robyn, Kieran, Christopher and Matthew, and Great-granddad to Tristan, Phoebe and Mitchell, we wish to send our condolences to these ringers and all the extended family members. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
