Goodbye Dad. You and mum gave us so many memories to treasure. Through your example and the odd admonishment you set us kids up for life. Thank you, Love Geoff.

  • ANDREW (Bill):

    Uncle Bill, you and Auntie Pat were such a wonderful stable loving influence in my life from early childhood with Christmas and Easter with the cousins, to trips to Rottnest, to teaching maths at uni. You came to my special hockey games and always supported me. Thanks for the cheeky smile and wisdom. You could always be relied upon. You always accepted me and made me feel loved.
