    Gerrit, Randy, Sandy and families,

    I am so sad to learn of your loss of your wife, mother and grandmother. I met June through the Calligraphy Guild and have so enjoyed her company over the years. June was always cheerful and smiling, no matter how she felt. She was a talented and wonderful lady and she will be so missed and remembered by all of us at the guild. I hope that in time your memories will sustain and comfort you and help you through this sad time of your life.

    At this difficult time, maybe your family can take comfort in that June will be the chief photographer with the angels for the permanent records in the heavens. God Bless.

    What a pleasure it is to think about the times we spent with June in New Zealand. We shared the enjoyment of playing cards and having meals together and going places under the guidance and care of June and Gerry. Who would have thought that a friendship started by calligraphy would blossom into this very fine relationship? We will miss June and her creativity so much but we must count ourselves fortunate to have known her and loved her.

    It was an honour to meet June through the calligraphy guild. Even though it was only a few times, it was delightful to talk with her, and I so appreciated her generous giving of time to help a “newbie”.

    Hi Gerry and Family,
    It has been a great 13 years since June and I renewed our friendship. We met at primary school at Mount Maunganui back in 1957. I guess I hadn’t seen June since we were 18-19 until we met at Bobby and Ilona’s with 11 other old school friends. Since then we have tried to catch up every year when June and Gerry are over here. I will miss those get togethers with June.
    What lasting memeories you will all have of June through her photography and the CD’s she has made of their trips to New Zealand.
    My Deepest Sympathy to you all at this very sad time.

    Gerry and Family
    My deepest sympathy on the loss of June, my loving thoughts are with you all. I couldn’t believe it when Ilona rang and told me the news.
    June was such a warm, lovely lady and I was delighted to see you both on the few occassions when I caught up on your trips home to NZ.
    Ilona and Bob gave me the address of this site when I called around to get your address from them.
    Take care and look forward to seeing you next time you are here in New Zealand
    Kindest regards
    Vera
