To Andrew , Jenni , James and your families
We are so sorry to hear that you have lost such a special link from your family chain. We are sure that he will be sorely missed by all along with all the funnies he emailed regularly to family and friends.
Please accept our deepest sympathy and thoughts.
Love from John and Jenni
Our thoughts are with you all,
Love from Lesley & Mike Demler
Sorry I missed the occasion on Friday. I didn't know about it until (nearly) now, otherwise I would have driven up for it. I don't know when first I met you - either late 1970s or early 1980s: it doesn't matter now. I do know that during the 20++ years that I worked with you, you were one of the a small number of clients for whom I had total respect: great gentlemen, much more reasonable person than most, great mind, and great friend. I could say much, much more but I think it's best I confine myself to saying this - my life has been much the better for having spent a large chunk of it knowing and working with you. Thanks mate, and to Jenni and your other children that I don't know, my very very sincere condolences: I too feel a great loss here, but I will also always value the memories of what a great guy your Dad was.
Dear Andrew, Jenni, James and your partners and families,
thinking of you all during this incredibly sad time. Such a sad and tragic turn of events to loose both your parents in such a short space of time. With love from Christine, John and family
To Andrew and Melissa, Jenni, James and Tracy and your families, our sympathy to you all. Michael had a big heart and a great sense of humour. He will be missed. Thinking of you all at this sad time. Sue, Wayne and family.
Dear Andrew, Jenni, James and families.
My deepest sympathy on the passing of your father
Mike was a wonderful colleague and friend and we shared many happy and memorable times while working together at UDC.
I was fortunate to have an enjoyable phone conversation with Mike at Labour Weekend.
I will remember him fondly.
