To the Tait Family and Averil.
I cannot believe that you have lost both your mother and father with in the year. Both great people,
Wilma certainly my long time friend and John ( Himself) always welcoming when you visited. Loved them both.
My Deepest Sympathy to you all. My heart is heavy.

I am so sorry for the unexpected loss of John; he was an amazing, respectful and loving man. I cared for both John and Wilma as their District Nurse, there was never a day i left their house without a smile on my face. Rest in peace John.
