30 November 2014 Dr Ian Player, goodbye dear friend of Wilderness

Dear All

Our much-loved friend, colleague, mentor, legend, hero, passed away very peacefully awhile ago.

Ann and the family are relieved that Ian’s Spirit has  found release and that he is re-united with those who have gone before him.

This morning Ken Tinley sent the following quote from African Wisdom;  “The sage fades away: he does not die”.  This was true of our dear friend Ian.  His passing has been so gentle and peaceful while his Spirit and Soul were being absorbed into the Greater Universe.

Thanks for your support and friendship during this challenging time. It has meant so much to the family.

A press release will be sent out with more information. A small private family funeral is being planned with a memorial service to follow at a later date.

You will be updated of developments.

Sheila Berry
