  2. Thank you for your sympathy, guys.

    As you might expect, I am somewhat overwhelmed by the extent of both the support and the abuse I am receiving at the moment.

  3. My sincere best wishes to your family John on the passing of your Father…

    And thanks to you, and your supporters of establishing this website …Many thanks

    Kind regards to you, and your family John Dutchie

    As for people giving the ‘abuse’…Here my message to them.. Hopefully they can ponder on the below quote from the bible…

    ‘For he who has not sinned,can cast the first stone’

  4. Dear John, condolences for your loss. As John Dutchie said, he who has never made a mistake, hasn’t done anything at all. Creativity is probably what NZ needs the most and creativity usually makes missteps among the steps forward. I’m not sure that there is much creativity in abuse? Best wishes, Murray.

  5. I agree John. The Bible also says “Do not judge others unless you wish to be judged by the same measure” Mere words cannot express my grief for the whole family.
