    A long life well lived.

    We remember happy days with you at Mandurah, your great love for Bill and your pride in your family. In later years you were content at home in North Perth with your animals and birds and we visited you with Hungry Jacks.

    We will miss you.

    Condolences to Irene, John and families.

    Much love Lea, Kirsten, Paul and family and Tamela.
