The last two weeks have also been a very emotional time for us and the family as we lost two of our elder statesmen. In Napier on 4 November 2014 our sister-in-law Kay's wonderful mother Daphne passed away and on Sunday 16 November the Matthews siblings lost their "uncle extraordinaire" Binney who passed away with his wife ...
