    So sorry to hear about the loss of Mr Perry, he built my home in Johnston in 1979 and was a dear friend. I remember tiling his kitchen floor shortly after, he was a dear friend. I often wondered where he had settled. My condolences to his wife and children.

    Sincere condolences to all of Alan’s family. I was fortunate to have worked with Alan for several years at Swarovski. Alan was always honest, friendly, unrattled by any situation and ready and able to fix whatever was wrong. It was my privilege and pleasure to know Alan.
