I knew your father and mother from their many years of volunteer work at the hospital. They were both lovely people. Always smiling. Even in these last few months whenever I saw your father at The Gardens he always stopped to say hello. He just beamed kindness and happiness wherever he went. He will be missed as is your mother. I hope knowing how many people thought so highly of them both brings you some comfort at this sad time.-Beverley Hall
I am very sorry to hear of Heinz's passing. I know he was a cherished part of my Aunt Margaret's life for sometime now
I am sure he will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.
Dear Eva, Wally, Peter and Family, My deepest sympathy on the passing of your father Heinz. How wonderful it is when our parent reaches such a fine age. His life was lived with all he loved around him. In his lifetime our world saw so much change yet he raised above them and ensured that you would all have greater opportunities. He loved to create and build, and as such he created a wonderful space on the lake for his family and himself. As you remember and celebrate his life, may it bring you comfort. May His legacy continue to bring you all much love and joy. Regards Beate.-Beate Acker
