Message from Jean Carwood-Edwards – re’ Rev’d Dr. Bill Hannah

Dear All

 I am aware that some of you know my dear friend Bill Hannah who attended the colloquium in the past and also a few times more recently. I am so sad to tell you that Bill died on Saturday 11th Feb at his home following a fairly long period of illness.

 Those of you who know him will know that education was his life passion and there was nothing he loved to do more than participate in an educational seminar or debate.

 Arrangements for his funeral were in the Herald yesterday and are as follows:

 Monday 20th Feb

1.45 – Glasgow Cathedral (Bill was a member)

3.30 – Clydebank Crematorium (Dalnottar North)

Everyone is welcome to come to join our ‘Gathering for Bill’ after the crematorium at my house, which is in Glasgow (west end)

 Please accept my apologies if you are receiving this email and you don’t know Bill – I just thought using our educational colloquium distribution list was the quickest and most straightforward way of reaching those of you who know him.

Please feel free to forward this email to anyone you think may wish to know.

Jean Carwood-Edwards

Please note that Jean hopes to be in the position to provide a photograph and an obituary for Bill in due course. when I receive this I will post it on the Blog

Thanks to Jean for alerting us to this
