Singing with Kerry

My sincere and belated condolences to Winkie and all the Ashby family on Kerry's passing. I met him just once to sing him a song called 'The Phantom Fleet'. We used the words of Kerry's father, Ted Ashby, set to music and it has been recorded by The Maritime Crew. Kerry was a delight to meet and get to know, brief though our encounter was. It is remiss of me not to have kept in touch and I'm saddened that he did not hear our recording of the song before he passed on.

Words alone cannot ease the pain and loss that your family is experiencing right now. "May seeking comfort from God provide strength during this difficult time." Heartfelt condolences - Isa 51:12

Our sincere sympathies to you Winkey and family for the passing of Kerry. Many a time at grt sth rd Paptoetoe what seems like many years ago. May he rest in peace. He and Vic will probably set up rowing in heaven

The special friendship that existed between our father and Kerry is one we can only aspire to. Kerry was such a wonderful part of our lives and his Tusitala tales, his booming laughter and the fun memories he has left us with will have him live on in our lives forever. Our sympathies to St Peter now that Vic and Kerry have joined forces again. Our warmest thoughts and love are with you and your family Winkie. The Douglas family

Much love to Auntie Winky,Dan,Rob,Kirsten and Graeme. My thoughts have been with you all at this sad time. Love Robyn xxxxx
