My Dearest Coli Boli,
How lucky I am to have had an Uncle I adored as much as I did you.
You were my family, my friend and always one of my favourites.
Nobody I know could tell a story like you … or play the piano as sweet as you did.
Your laughter was quick to fill a room and you were always one of the people cheering the loudest in my corner.
I will forever cherish the memories
You were so loved and you will forever be missed.
Fly High Boli,
All My LoveAugust 4, 2020

I am so sorry for you loss Sue and family. I have wonderful memories of my years of working together with Colin at Mission Australia in Caboolture .He was a wonderful conversationalist and I clearly remember the times he and Evan and Ron Smoothy would gather under the back stairs in what I called ‘Gentleman’s Corner’ and they would solve the problems of the world. Thank you for the invitation and I will join the streaming service tomorrow .You are in my thoughts .Warm regards, Kit Ison.August 4, 2020
