  1. Dear Alison

    Thank you for enabling us to share in this poignant requiem Mass. What a fitting tribute for a wonderful man. Thanks Greer and Grant for being pillars of strength, support, love and dignity. May God bless and comfort those who mourn and may His peace which passes all understanding descend on you and remain with you.
    With much love, Colin and Fay Pistorius

  2. Although this is a sad occasion we are so blessed to be able to share in it with you in this fashion. We look back over many years to when we were together in Cape Town and even when you visited us in London. I always felt an affinity with Martin in our love of music and the Goons. We still have all the tapes that he made of the Goon show! Our admiration of his triumph over disability was an example to all and he certainly didn’t let it hinder him.
    We are sorry that we couldn’t be with you at this time but you have always been in our thoughts and prayers, especially in recent days. Please be assured of these in future days as well.
    With much love, Margaret and Peter Reece

  3. Dear Alison, Greer, Grant, Kira and Gavin
    You are in our thoughts at this difficult time and we are sending you all lots of love. That was a beautiful service and I hope you find comfort in the beautiful memories you have shared with Michael. Watching Michael walking Greer down the aisle earlier this year I could see how extremely proud he was of his family and also his amazing musical talent when he performed ‘Forever Young’, it was such a special moment and I know you will treasure it forever.

  4. Dear Alison, Greer & Grant and Kira & Gavin,
    Thank you for enabling us to join you from NZ as you farewelled a much loved Husband, Father and Grandad. It was a beautiful service and very fitting for Michael with great music and well timed humour with Monty Python. Grant you did such wonderful justice to the special man Michael was, your words obviously so well prepared and true to who Michael was.
    We saw the kindness and the gift Michael had for inspiring young people to love music first hand, with the time and wisdom Michael shared with Brodie at your wedding. He will not be forgotten by our family.
    You have many wonderful memories to keep him with you and I know you will find both times of great sorrow as well as times of great comfort as you recall those.
    Love to you all from the Ware-Bartle Family xx

  5. Thank you for allowing us to join you in this very special farewell. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and in time we are sure only the good times will be remembered.
    With out love,
    Graham and Patricia Baragwanath

  6. Dear Alison and family,
    Many thanks for enabling us to share in the very moving service. Michael will always be remembered as a truly gentle man, as well as a true gentleman. His love of music always shone through whenever you spoke with him and his kindness, love and good nature at all times will be some of the attributes that we will remember him by.
    Sincere condolences on your tragic loss, I am sure Mike’s love for his family will help you all to pull through and support you in this difficult time.
    Love and best wishes
    Glen, Caroline and family.

  7. Farewell Michael I enjoyed the few times we met, you were such a kind caring man who will be sadly missed . To Alison and family my condolences and love, and in hope that one day in due time you will meet him again in heavenly comfort. Peace to you all. God bless and comfort you. Michelle ❤️

  8. I’m thankful I could be present to view the moving service for Michael. Michael and Alison took me in for weekends when I was in boarding school in Cape Town as a young boy. Michael took me to Newlands often to watch cricket. That’s where my absolute passion for the game started.. Michael was such a gentle and humble man.. I haven’t seen him or family in many years as they moved. But found them on Facebook 4 years ago was so special to reconnect again. And Alison and Michael and I often chatted. Best wishes forward Alison and family love from the Websters John, Wendy, Lincoln, Sam, and Luke.

  9. We are thankful that we could participate in Michael’s service. We will always cherish our memories of Mick – our friend and band mate. May he rest in peace – we wish you strength Alison.

  10. What a beautiful service….so very “Mike”, with all the reminiscences of what a great and good bloke he was. Of all Peter’s long-time friends, I believe that Mike was one of whom he was particularly fond. I
    tried to look for the tape of the Newton Rowboat playing, to send to him, as they had been talking about
    their band days together….but, while it must still be around, it wasn’t prepared to show itself. Sending you all loads of love…..take the time to look after yourselves as Mike would want.

  11. Dearest Alison and family
    Thank you so much for the gift of being able to share this service with you. It was incredibly moving, and offered us, distance notwithstanding, the opportunity to begin our own process of finding peace with Michael’s passing. I am missing his kind and always loving communications already.
    I’m sure his parents and Uncle Ken are taking good care of him!
    Much love from Rory, Wendy, Josh and Taryn. Xxx

  12. Michael was an amazing person, Dad and Grandad and talented beyond words. He will be sorely missed by the Armstrong clan.
    Love and best wishes to all who knew, loved and appreciated him around the globe.

  13. Plz give my heartfelt condolences to all the family a tribute to a wonderful man who I had a lot of admiration for. Be strong and brave as he would want you to be. Thinking of you. Keep your chin up. Cherish your good memory’s have a good wake and everyone must talk about the good man he was
    . How he managed so well with his disability. And best to you for the good wife you’ve been xx
