I (Brenda) vividly remember the first time I met Marion and George. I had gone to stay with Ian as a first visit to see how we got on together and if we wanted to take our fledging relationship further. This was weeks before I actually moved in with him and I hadn't met any of Ian's friends or family. A knock at the door and there was Marion & George peering at me, come to check to see if this woman was worthy of being with their friend. Good friends checking up on a mate. Thank you both for welcoming me into your group. A couple of years later Marion started working at the Valuation Department (later called Valuation NZ) where I was already working so then we became work mates too. Sadly we have not kept in touch so much since we moved to Australia but we do call in for a catch up whenever we are in town. I'm sorry that you, George, and your family have had this very sad thing happen to you, very much well before you were fully prepared to accept it I'm sure. Love & hugs, Brenda & Weed
