My Dad, Alexander John McKinlay (John), died peacefully in his sleep early yesterday morning 28 February 2014 (my birthday) in Hobart. He was 91 and had been well up to the last two months or so of his life. He was a master teacher and had a deep and abiding confidence in the goodness and graciousness of God. Dad decided not to have any funeral: his ashes will be next to those of my mother, June, in Albury NSW. Thank you so much to friends who have supported my family and me with love and prayers.
