    I can’t begin to tell you how sorry we are Graeme. We are devastated. I truly don’t think Mark will ever be the same. You left without knowing how much we really loved you. And we did. So much. I hope you can feel that love till we see you again.

    Love always Mark, Jennifer and Mia.

    Loving and courageous Brother, Brother-in-law, Uncle and Friend of Eddie, Lorraine, Daniel, Simone, Joanna and Chris. Our hearts are heavy at your sudden passing. A gentle and Salt of the Earth man whom we will miss dearly.

    You can take the boy from the country, but never the country from the boy.

    My darling brother. It is heartbreaking to lose you so suddenly but I am grateful I was there for your last weeks to nurse you and to talk.

    My heart and head are full of wonderful, funny memories that will remain forever. Your generous assistance when I was on my own with my young daughter and your loving big brother/fatherly influence on Marnie was priceless when we three and the horses lived for 4 1/2 years in Newburn and Kalgoorlie. Plus many more years of fun filled country races and 4WD camping trips down south. Such glorious days! I promise to finish your Art Deco house as you planned, then I'll sit on your verandah with a Gin and Tonic and we'll chat. Farewell Grae, I love you.

    My beautiful friend, it was so painful to see you fade away but I am grateful I could be with you to the end. The void you have left will never be filled. You are closer than a brother to me and I treasure our time together. You showed me a beautiful side of your country, but there was so much more we had yet to do and see. Thank you for your friendship and it was a privilege to call you my very best mate.

    I love you, Austin.
