Please accept Jill and my most sincere condolences on your loss of a truly nice man.
I can’t remember the number of rams I bought from Colin over the years, but I certainly remember the after sale conversations/discussions that often took far longer than the selection process, and covered such a wide range of issues, from farming practices to the wisdom of the government of the day.
Colin provided wise and useful counsel to me and I respected him as a true gentleman, whose opinion I valued, and friendship I appreciated, and you are all in our thoughts at this time.

Yours sincerely
Bill & Jill Taylor

Dear Ellen. Our thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time. Have memories of you both from many years ago when you were in Jaycees with my mum and dad(Ian and Merle)going on bottle drives and fertiliser drives, then bumping into Colin and yourself around town ever since. He was a really nice memorable man.
