From my Face book post:-
Rosemary and Family I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Wilfie always had a special place in my heart as did you Rosemary and Mr Drover . My children who are all now in their 50,s thought the world of him, he was their guardian when we lived in your house in Paradise and needed a sitter. I know they will be upset. Wilfie, Rest in Peace my special friend .

Pam, Rosemary & family,
I was so saddened to learn of Wilf’s sudden passing. Such a terrible loss for your family after such a courageous battle. My heart goes out to you all. ❤ Pam, you always spoke kindly about your brother when we worked together, and most definitely about his hat collection. Treasure your memories of him in the challenging days, weeks and months ahead, and hopefully some of those hats can bring a smile on your face.
With our deepest sympathy,
Krista & Jeff
