    Had a reply to the email I sent to the Illawarra Mercury, being Sunday i wasn't expecting to hear anything today.

    "Good afternoon Derek

    My apologies to you in respect for trying to place your wife's memoriam notice.

    I will contact you tomorrow as I need to speak to the team to see what has happened in regards to contacting you.

    I have arranged for your wife's memorial notice to be placed in the Illawarra Mercury edition tomorrow 1st March, please see below the details & proof of the notice with only word change 'twelve' to 'thirteen' as per your request

    I will speak to you tomorrow with a follow up upon my investigation.

    My sincere apologies during this difficult time

    Warm regards

    That was also followed up with a phone call from Robinand Robyn is going to phone me around 1 pm tomorrow, I'm so relieved that the notice will be in tomorrow, it has certainly scaled down my anger.

    Derek I am sorry to hear this. What about putting something on here about your wife (today). Who knows more people may see it. I know it's not the same but it will mark the day.
