Jerry Collins' touching email to John Campbell appears online

Only last month John Campbell received this heartfelt email from Jerry Collins, thanking the journalist for his help.
 
The rugby player who died on Friday with his wife in a car crash in France, sent an email to the former current affairs host to say thank you for the role Campbell played during Jerry Collins' stint in jail in 2013.
 
"Hey john id just like to say thankyou for coming to see me while i was in jail in japan," he wrote.
 
"You were the only journalist who came and though we couldnt physically speak through the glass, the sign language helped eliviate my families fears."
