On Sunday Ray and l lost a good mate totally unexpectedly. Garry went into hospital just before Easter for wrist surgery. In on Tuesday night, operated on Wednesday and home on Thursday. He was readmitted over Easter with an infection, another op required, Garry suffered a heart attack, there were other complications, for a week his family have kept a bedside vigile.
On Sunday night we got the call, Garry lost his fight, he was surrounded by his family.
Garry was a lovely man, he loved the Bombers, in fact we believe he may have been responsible for the winning goal kicked on Sunday, he loved horse racing and he loved the Log Cabin Ranch. Bu most of all Garry loved his family. He was a brilliant husband, father, grandfather and friend.
Two weeks ago today he arrived in his MG, another one of his loves, came to have a chat, he was well known for his chats and to check up on our new deck.
We didn't know it but that was the last time we'd see Garry.
Those of you who came to my Quilt Camps actually know Garry, he and his wife Jenny own the Log Cabin Ranch.
This has been a very sad week. Our love goes out to Jenny, Kate, Mark, Kent Courtney, Harry and little Teddy.
