Hugh died very peacefully on a beautiful dawn. Our farewell ceremony to Hugh was interwoven with his poetry and with the words from so many of you who have encouraged and supported him over this past most difficult time. It is wonderful too though to remember that Hugh lived his dream for almost all of his life. He engaged in the almost lost art of finding joy and pleasure in the simplest things and because of this he was a man satisfied with his life.
Hugh's death notice appeared in the New Zealand Herald yesterday. His obituary, written by Dan Rabarts, will appear in the NZ Herald on 22nd November. Dan will also write a more extensive obituary that will be posted, among other places, on this blog in due course.
Thank you all for your recent comments and support.
