Maggie and I have just made a quick trip to Newcastle to see Ross and Carol.

Many of you would remember them as regulars at our east coast camp oven gatherings.

Just over twelve months ago Ross was diagnosed with a brain tumour and has been undergoing treatment.  Sadly the cancer has now spread down his spine.

He has lost the use of both legs and requires a wheel chair when out of bed.

He is currently in a nursing home for care at Stockton, NSW.

It was a good visit and we found him in pretty good spirits.  Despite everything he is still pretty sharp and his memory is good.

Carol is happy for me to let people know how he is going.

We are on our way home and currently bunkered down for the night at Coffs Harbour.

Hetty and I visited Ross and Carol in March.

They are going to have some tough times ahead.

It is with great sadness that we advise that Ross passed away last night.
