  • Thinking of you today. Love Kate, Jon (hes in Italy/Croatia right now - you loved singing your songs from Italy) Angie & Jen. Peace.

  • A charismatic, memorable, person, who gave of his time as a Spiritual Healer for half of his life. I miss his love, compassion and warmth. The light in my life went out when he died. We were together for nearly fifty years, sharing nearly everything we did. He was a great dancer, and loved music, playing a few instruments, and worked closely with a number of bands. His legacy will be carried on by his daughter, his three grandchildren and three great grandchildren. He was one of lifes gamblers in many ways, so life was never dull. Keep up the good work, and I will join you one day.
    Public - Evelynne - Wife - 26 February 2015
