My wife Christine and I, extend deepest condolences to Thelston's family and relatives. I regret that we are not there to express sympathy personally but our thoughts and prayers are with you as we grieve his death.
None of us know the reason God has chosen to call him home and we must accept that whatever He does should be well with us.
We grew up together and played a lot of cricket, dominoes and road tennis.
