Our heartfelt condolences to all those who have lost family and friends in the earthquake that hit Christchurch last Tuesday 22 February.
Today New Zealand observed a two-minute silence in memory of the victims and their families at 12.51 pm– one week exactly from the time the 6.3 magnitude quake struck.
Christchurch is where I grew up and where my parents live. They are fine, as is our South Island sales representative Peter Gray, and our many friends and family there. Canterbury people are resilient, and we know the city will be back.
For now, our thoughts are with Christchurch and all who have suffered loss.
