    Thanks for letting me know about Pat’s passing, Raymond. Your mother and father were very important people for me. In a sense, they were part of my family and I learned so much about life and music while playing in Lester’s band. We talked about a wide range of issues while travelling to gigs. Pat was always in the picture somewhere, offering the sort of loving support that blokes require in a life-long partner. Their relationship was a model for everyone. My heart-felt condolences on her passing, but I know you will treasure her memory for the rest of your life. Gavin

  6. Bianca Taylor says:

    Thanks Nan Pat for welcoming me into the Taylor family with open arms, especially since my family was across the otherside of Australia. I never got to know my grandparents so I consider myself very lucky to have been able to experience a small essence of what it would have been like. Thank you for everything you have done, lots of love Bianca and the Silcox family x
