I can not find the right words to put down how sad I feel on the loss of John, only can I say I will remember the memories I have of him and his sense of humour. How at the greenhouse he would always have a daily joke and he always started your day off saying good morning or if you were a few minutes late ,good afternoon plus so many more. Thinking of all of the family at this time and knowing you have many memories too.

Dear Ruth, Denese, Deb, Steve, Mike, Rachel, Mark and families,
Our most sincere condolences to all of you on the loss of a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. I just can’t believe it. I can still see him watering all those beautiful plants and always joking around with me when I worked at Westwood. He taught me so much, how hard work pays off and how important family is. I will miss his smile.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all and keep all those wonderful memories close to your heart.
He was a special man. ♥

Hope to connect with you upon our return.
