My condolences to the Boal family. I knew Colin from being on the GNGH Hospital Board. He was such a nice, even going fellow, and I spend many an enjoyable lunch with him, discussing the financial woes of our local hospital. RIP dear Colin.

My deep condolences to your family. I’ve known Colin for over 10 years & am proud to say that he was more than a client but a friend. He got more than a fair share of physical pain but his joy was his family, whom I know he treasured. I will miss him.
My heart goes out to you all
