Dear Ba, a note to pass on our sympathies on the death of Tri. I can well remember your family at South School where the boys did really well and developed into fine hockey players while in the background Tri was a very hard worker. Best wishes to you Ba as you adjust to a new future.

Ba, Michael and Amanda, Thanh, Antony and Jane and grandchildren I am still shocked that Tri is gone, you never know it is the last time you will see that smile of his.
My heart and love go out to you all, it takes a few years to start feeling again and being able to face a different life Ba but throw yourself into the Grandchildren they will help you through the dark times. Sorry I’m flying to Europe tomorrow, such bad timing so can’t be there on Wednesday, but will be thinking of you all.

My husband Ivan and I wish to extend to you all our sincere sympathy on your sad loss on the sudden passing of Tri. Ivan played table tennis with Tri twice a week, and enjoyed his company and friendship. I too have met Tri several times when out walking in the park with Ivan - he was always very friendly and pleasant to chat with, and I'm sure his loss will leave a huge gap in all your lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you grieve for a much loved husband, father and grandfather.

To Tri's family,
The members of the Invercargill social table tennis club were shocked and saddened to learn of Tri's sudden passing, and extend our sincere condolences to his family. I have played table tennis regularly with Tri over the last 10 years or so and every game was a pleasure. He was always a worthy opponent or partner. I admired his skilful play, his sportsmanship and friendliness. He will be greatly and sadly missed from among us.
