The Revd. John Charles Higman.
Rector of Mary Tavy and Peter Tavy.

     I would like to thank everyone for all the cards, messages and letters of condolence, following the loss of my dear husband John.  The many tributes I have received show how much he was loved, valued and respected. 

     I am sincerely grateful to everyone who helped in any way with the arrangements for the funeral and requiem. I particularly wish to thank Father Greg Stanton for his kindness and for conducting the services.

     John always said he felt truly blessed to be our Rector and to minister in ‘The Tavys’. I know that he will be remembered with great affection for his kindness and unfailing good humour.  He was always ready to help and encourage others.  His sudden death has been a terrible shock.  I am grateful for all your prayers at this very difficult time.

Stella Higman.
