Hi All,

Hope this is the right place, and no-one has any objections.

Some may know, my lovely wife, Gina, sadly passed away on the 20th March this year. She had endured a long fight against Leukaemia, succumbing to Pneumonia frown

I have been asked to post the tribute site Danielle and I set up in her memory.

I would be honoured if anyone would like to leave any little anecdotes.

Kind Regards, may see you all about in Rosa sometime smile

John & Danielle

Sincere condolences to you and your family John.

Would be great to sort out a Welsh meet this summer. Some of us are talking about going to the Cardiff show on 10th June if you are interested.

Ah John, that is indeed so very sad indeed. Nothing I could say will make any difference. Only those in the know can feel your pain. I can only offer mere words.

I'm an old git & happy with it,most of the time

Sincere condolences to you and your family on your sad loss. I hope the donations to DKMS UK help to provide a fitting tribute through helping others

So sorry to hear of the passing of Gina.

Words won't mean much at this time - but I am sure she will want you to stay strong for your family, and to continue using Rosa.

I am sure Gina will never be far away from you, and always in the passenger seat of Rosa.

Park Rosa next to TRS at some point this year - and you can put my coupes to shame again!

Regards and best wishes,

Really incredibly sorry John, Typed words are not enough.
I hope you are doing ok, and I think its fair to say as a community if there is anything you need just ask.
