    Marty, I was so sorry to hear of Heath’s passing. He was always so cheerful with a ready smile. We all had so much fun over the years with Scottish Country dancing, and I’m sure he is dancing in heaven right now.

    Margaret and I were very saddened to hear of Heath’s death. Although I have had little contact with Heath in recent years, there was a time a few decades ago when we had a strong business and social relationship. Many a fall Saturday would find us hunting, often in the company of John and Lyle and thanks to Heath’s humour those memories will last forever. Marty, we will be thinking of you and your family during this difficult time.

    Kindest regards

    Marty, it has been several years or possibly decades but every so often I would think of you and Heath. I may have even seen you around St Giles Church dancing as that is our family place for the last 50 years. Again our thoughts are with you.
