    What a perfect environment underneath our God’s heaven with the sun shining and surrounded by nature – perfect ! And to add to the peace, a calm day with no wind. Fleur ,you did a wonderful job, and it was great to see you all, be it online.
    The warmth of all the tributes from Jill and John’s family added to this. We felt right there with you all. All our love to you Jilly, and especially Fleur, Simon and Josh. It was a lasting and unforgettable farewell for a very special man-he will have a wonderful journey.

    Lots of love to you all from us both, Franny and Richard. xxx

    Thank you for enabling me to join your memorable service . John was a dear friend of mine whose friendship goes back 69 years !
    We both were on the staff of the Sydney Grammar Prep School in our early twenties, One memorable summer holiday was spent camping along the 90 mile beach and travelling along the Queensland coast.
    Iam sure that John would have had a distinguish career as principle Of Canberra Grammer School
    It has been my privilege to count John as a dear friend
