    Dear Theo and family;

    Eloise phoned me about the sad news about David. I am so sorry I can’t see you at Springbank as I have a previous commitment. We go back a long time my dear. North Hill days up to Mother’s funeral and to today. We had a nice visit at St. David’s in March which I’ll savour. We ran across each other at Presbytery and conference events and were always enjoyable. You also sang so well together and we will miss that. My heart goes out to all of you. In the end the love you take will be equal to the love you make. Which you both did. Eloise joins me in sending our love and sympathy. I will phone soon.

    Take care,


    Stutt and Eloise
