  1. Dear Chris and Donna and all your family,

    John has just told me your sad news and I am really sorry you are going through such sadness at this time in your lives. Please also give my deepest sympathy to yourselves and to all your family. I will be thinking of you. John will keep me posted.

    Love from,


  2. I’m sorry to hear that Chris. My condolences to you and your family.

    He would have died shortly after you got there wouldn’t he?

    My father actually died in similar circumstances. He’d just started getting into the computer craze and his life was looking up when one day he turned blue and went unconcious. They figured out that a combination of pneumonia and smoking had left him with 2% lung capacity and they had to sedate him so he wasn’t using up so much energy.

    It’s never nice to lose family.

  3. Hi dearest Chris,

    you are so like your dad in many ways – a simple man, a curious and conscientious doer with a thirst for knowlege and a taste for facts, a warm easy going simply be man.
    he will always be with you.

    Love from your wife, and his daughter in law, Donna *)
