The last month has been rather like a roller coaster ride for us. On 3 March, my only daughter got married in Christchurch. It was a lovely day, enjoyed by all our family and friends. Five days later, my darling and very active 93 year old dad was involved in a horrendous accident (of which he was not at fault) and sadly, on 17 March, he died of his injuries.

Words cannot express our gratitude enough - to our amazing staff - Linda, Margaret, Tracey, Rose and Diane - for all their amazing support over the last 3 weeks. To our customers - we have been blown away - from the cards, flowers, food and loving messages from so many of you. To the many people we do not even know, who have called in to say what a special man dad was.

As a family, we always knew what a special person Gordon Howey was - but we never fully appreciated just how much he had influenced so many in the wider community. It has been very special to us as a family to have this support.

He was an amazing person, who lived every day of his 93 years.


Thank you!
