During the last week two of the island’s stalwart “elders” both passed away.
On Saturday night (26th November) Bert Baker died peacefully in his sleep in the hospice in Dunoon and on Wednesday night (30th November) Petre Withall slipped away at home on Easdale.
Both had almost reached their “four score years and ten” and both will be sorely missed. We hope to publish remembrances of them shortly.
This will be a very difficult time for Jean and for Mary and our thoughts go out to them.
