Email from the Marshall Family

Hi All 
The family would like to pass on our heartfelt thanks to all of you who attended dads funeral last week. Special thanks to those who travelled for afar even though there may have been some dramas getting from the airport. 
As you all know shooting was a huge part of his life and when I was sorting something out on his computer yesterday there were 3 web pages open, met service, xtra emails and NRANZ. So he was always checking up and showing an interest in the sport. 
He would have been humbled to see all the black blazers and if I’d known a guard of honour may have been appropriate. 
Many thanks again and he will be missed by many. 
Best wishes for the upcoming season.
Kind Regards
Graeme and Family.
