Sad. I'm sure you'll pass on our condolences to John and via him to Doug's family. I don't think there's a problem in passing on the message.

Thanks

Yes I received that message as well

Condolences to the families.

And so we all go that way one day.

What a pity, so much to see and do in one short lifetime albeit maybe on a camel soon(with fuel prices going skywards)
