Some tributes received so far:

Bosmail post from Penny Groom 21/2/23: I have just received the sad new from Steve and Megumi Biddle that John Cunliffe (ELFA) passed away on 28th January and it was his funeral last Friday. John spent his last years firstly in a flat in Hastings, then in a care home in St. Leonards on Sea where he was very happy. He will be remembered by BOS convention goers up to the mid 90's. There will be an obituary in the BOS magazine in due course. Penny

Very sad news. John has been one of the most active and enthusiastic members of the BOS, we'll miss him a lot. ❤ Roberto Morassi

An extraordinary life as a paperfolder (and letter/envelope). Laura Rozenberg
