  1. I was fortunate to have a chat with Callo about a week ago, and I’m sure he would have liked me to pass this on. In his wonderful positive way he talked about how grateful he was for his life, and he had no regrets. He and Barb had moved to their new low maintenance unit and all his affairs were in order, He was in no pain, (he said it was apparently a characteristic of Liver cancer). All his family were close by and he knew the days were numbered. I understand he passed peacefully.

    We, finished the chat with the customary ‘mates forever’. We will all miss our dear Callo a great friend , father and human being. His open warm heart and exuberant ways will stay with us forever. It will be a very tough time for Barb but fortunately the family is strong and very supportive.
