Sir Brian Barrett-Boyes - A pioneer is honoured
A pioneer is honoured
The work of pioneering New Zealand heart surgeon, Sir Brian Barrett-Boyes, has been honoured in a tribute established by a newly opened memorial web site.
Remembering.co.nz (www.remembering.co.nz) has issued an open invitation to any New Zealanders that want to pay their respects to Sir Brian to visit the site where they can leave their own personal comments and tributes to this great Kiwi.
The site, which provides memorial space for all New Zealanders, also archives family photographs, video and audio and has already archived a paper written by Sir Brian in 2003, on the history of cardiac surgery in New Zealand.
Remembering features a special section that pays tribute to this country's road accident victims and a wide range of our Kiwi greats.
The site was created by Howick resident, Catherine Barclay, as a special tribute to her own mother who died late last year of motor neurone disease
