The following was received from Christchurch and the Southern Branch.

Dear Boyd,

It was with concern and sadness your Christchurch and Southern Branch NZPFU brothers heard of the death of Jamie. We wish to extend our sincere condolences and sympathy to all who knew Jamie in the Auckland local, Northern Branch and of course his family.

In my Fire Service role I am the welfare officer for Region 4 and as such would feel privileged if I can play a small part in helping your colleagues as an independent confidential listening ear if anyone should wish to contact me.

On behalf of the Christchurch Local and the Southern Branch NZPFU

 Jim Ryburn Southern Branch Secretaryā€¯

Should anyone wish to contact Jim, his mobile number is 021 654 184.

Jim would be an excellent source of assistance and the Auckland Local thanks him for his offer to any member as well as the expression of his condolences.
