This is from both Graham & Maggie Gairn. Colin will always be remembered as someone who would always go out of his way to help. We both enjoyed his enthusiasm for South Africa and it was his encouragement that meant that we would be sharing a birthday with him in Port Elizabeth. May you now rest in peace Colin.

Uncle Colin
I will always have such wonderful memories of the kindness, patience and love you shared with me on my various trips to the UK and your visits with Aunty Jean to South Africa. The time and great care you took to share your special part of England with me. You meant the world to Mom and to Daddy and I am so very pleased that you and Dad will be keeping each other company casting into the never ending trout dams together. Martin and I fondly remember the last time I saw you and Aunty Jean on a visit to us in George, South Africa. As with Daddy you too have left footprints across all our hearts. Lots of love Martin, Sue, Reece and Valiant.

To Colin my big brother, from the sister you wanted your mother to return to the hospital because you wanted a brother when I was born.
Thank you for always being there for me when we were growing up. Teaching me how to do so many things, climbing trees, riding a bike, playing with trains even if I did set the bed on fire, catching eels, fish and crabs. Digging for worms that I had to put on hooks myself, playing cricket and much much more.
When we moved to Sutton in our teenage years, you covered for me if I got home past curfew and I did the same for you. We were a team when it came to making up the numbers of boys and girls for parties. What a great time we had.
I had to go to South Africa a find a South African to marry before you could say he was not good enough for me. Ironically you got on well with Julian when you met him on our first visit to the UK.
When you came to South Africa with Jean, you got Julian and I hooked on trout fishing which we have since enjoyed for many years, in SA and the UK. How I am going to miss those days.
Now you are both out to catch the big one in heaven.
Farewell my darling brother.
