Dear Angela, we wish that we could be with you and the families. We enjoyed our visits to 24 Melbourne St each time we were visiting Invercargill, we made it a priority to catch up as we knew we were always welcome. Loved our chats and white wine especially being told that we don't understand. A debate was always iminent during the visit and made it a memobrable occassion. Lovely to see he reached a ripe and healthy age of 90 years and has left many fond memories in our lives. God Bless and love to all Tony, Rosita and family in Perth xx

My sincere condolences to the Hailes family. The late Millie and Bert Zwies, originally from Glenure, Balfour spoke often of the wonderful love and support Con, his wife and their children Pat, Marita, Kevin, Eddie and Les gave to them as a young farming couple with little children. Although having lost contact with the Hailes family, they hold a special place in our hearts. Barry (deceased), Pamela and Rowena Zwies.
