I have no memories of Winston - am but a very distant relative; but I've recently been lucky enough to trace a family I never knew I had (all over Canada). I still have a letter on my computer that I was planning to send to BC. Winston would have been a sort of cousin...My father, Reginald Stewart Rekert was the brother of Harry, Winston's father.
I can't, then, offer real condolences to Winston's family but, in my case, merely knowing that there is a solid, flourishing line of Rekerts still on the planet, I can truly say that 'No man is an island'. Indeed, one of the first tributes on this site was sent frm Lynette Zirk, a half-niece of mine (!) who appraised me of Winston's death but yesterday.
To the family - my best wishes. Winston is not forgotten (even here, where I live, in France: and, of course, I have DVDs). I hope that you don't think that I'm writing out of turn.
