To Doreen and family

So sorry to hear about Terry's death. As fellow members of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust in Swindon, Terry was a valued member of our committee and I remember his military precision for all the successful events he organised.
Our thoughts are with you

I am so sorry to hear of Mr. King's passing. I only had the pleasure to meet him on one occasion, but he was a delight and loved entertaining all the children that happen to be at this gathering. I know he will be greatly missed and as Sue commented - we shall all see him again.
