Our love and hugs to Colin and family, saddened to hear of Dawnes passing...remembering the great times in Boyne Island years ago.
After returning to Invercargill for 23 years, we retired back here in Boyne Island. So many memories xxx

I'm so sorry for your loss Colin and family. I'm saddened I never got to meet Dawne. From Dwayne's stories she was an amazing lady, and he has very fond memories.
