    Gordon, we are the two silly English women from hockey. We have just read about your lovely wife and we feel so sad and sorry......we can't believe it. We were looking forward to seeing you both at the games this season. There is nothing we can say or do to ease your pain and grief. Please know that we are thinking of you and your family at this very sad time.
    Much love, Margaret and Judith xx
