A message from Jeff Maclean

Dear Friends,

I am very sad to advise that Ross Maclean passed away on Wednesday 23rd February 2005 aged 80 years young.

In the last months a great number of people visited and contacted Ross for personal and/or business reasons. It seems that the one often overlapped the other – as many business people were also friends and others who learned from Ross’s experience and knowledge benefited in their financial affairs.

One thing foremost on Ross’s mind was the progress of the Research Fellowship into Motor Neurone Disease, which was initiated by Ross and his family in 2004.

In his words Ross wrote a few days ago:

The funding of the Fellowship to date is going fairly well and we are very pleased with the donations from a number of my friends and business acquaintances. I understand that an appointment has been made of the required scientist to pursue the projects and that increased research will begin very shortly. MND is far more prevalent then most people realize and yet in speaking with people the number who have lost a loved one or friend to MND is surprising. Thank you all again who have contributed to this research and also the people whom I know intend to donate. Contributions are still required with some urgency, so to all of my friends and others out there, who have not yet contributed: please do so.

With my best wishes,

Ross Maclean.

As a person, who deserves and has a special place in the hearts of an enormous number of people, the appeal for donations to the QBI Research Fellowship will hopefully stimulate every one of you to continue to bring out the best of what Ross always saw in humanity by supporting this worthwhile cause.
