Thinking of you all at this sad time of farewelling Lindsay. Our deepest sympathies to all.
Memories of love and friendship are treasures to carry with you always.
We are saddened to learn of Lindsay's death. Our thoughts are with you Anne and the Burnett family. We have fond memories of times in your company.

Sending much love to all the family at this time and especially Anne. Lindsay was such a wonderful neighbour who will always be remembered with love and affection.
Camille and John Alabaster, Alexandra
When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if you will, remember,
And if you will, forget.

A poem by Christina Rosetti

In memory of a truly gentle man.

Thinking of you all and wishing I could be with you. Thank you for 60 years of wonderful friendship and fun times together. From sharing honeymoons together to gardening marathons and times in between. You were such a gentle man and will be sorely missed by all. Now there will be no one to call me KID.
Take care Anne and I will see you soon.
