Some sad news to pass along regarding John Gallant’s wife Patsy. Dear Friends, So sorry to tell you that my darling Patsy passed away Sunday a.m. here in Pindara Hospital where she had been for 10 days. I was with her and she was very peaceful. She continued to say what a lucky life we’d had with such good friends. Our daughters and families were able to FaceTime with Patsy right up to the Friday/Saturday. Later we will hold a Life Celebration for local friends. Love and Best Wishes, John
I hope you are all keeping well through these tough times but it seems like there is some light at the end of the tunnel. We continue to see sports making their way back to their respective pitches with modified seasons. Some sports are better than no sports.
A few months back I sent out an email advising of the tragic passing of Coach Cowan. Through working with the nephew of the coach Hamish Young, I am providing an update that the coach will be cremated in the coming weeks. The Young family has asked that I send out the link to a Go Fund Me account for those who would like to contribute to the Coach’s family.Any support is greatly appreciated
