Nan, it was a privilege to meet you and your beautiful husband and a very special privilege and honour to care for him. He is a truly dignified and out of the ordinary gentleman, but I think you all know that. I will miss him. With love and prayers Sharon (Calvary Retirement Community)

I first met John Whitelaw in 1984 at a National Tree Program Ministerial Advisory Committee meeting when I was the National Vice President of Greening Australia. I went onto to become National President and John became a Consultant to Greening Australia. We undertook many projects together and improved the role and influence of Greening Australia. Many others have followed but those early days saw the development of significant foundations. John's contribution to Greening Australia was remarkable. I was most impressed with John's dedication to and insightful aspirations for Greening Australia. Even after my active involvement with Greening Australia ended I kept in touch with Nan and John until the last few years. It was always a pleasure to spend time with them. I expect John’s wise counsel will be missed by many. It was my pleasure to have known and worked with John Whitelaw.
