    Dear friends,
    It's Linde here, I'm so sorry we haven't contacted you but at the end of a dreadful time in hospital, Ray sadly lost his fight, and passed away at 3.15am on the 19th April. I have been at his side day and night for the last month, and was with him when he finally passed. I am only now catching up with friends slowly. I'm of course devastated and taking one hour at a time basically.
    Love from Linde

    Me too, Woody. Mainly why it's taken me so long since he died to come here. I kind of knew, when we didn't hear from him for so long, but I didn't want to know. :17:

    Just found this. I've been off the board a lot due to my husband and I being in a serious wreck. God Bless Kiwi''s family and hope they're holding up during this time.

    My husband is disabled for life, missing a big section of ribs. Thank you. But he's alive, a good thing :)
