Dear Wards Family, in Memory of your father, who will always be remembered as friendly and welcoming to myself and family at St Andrews church, (or whenever we met) someone my late father Basil and my husband Sofus could always have a long talk about farming, Fonterra and rural chit chat. Very rarely without a smile our thoughts are with you all.
