Deepest sympathy to all of the Dorling Family. From the Footy field to the Workplace a longtime friend and Good Guy.August 27, 2020
In life we loved you dearly, and in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, that no-one else will ever fill.
I’ll be holding onto the love forever and not the loss, because death only ends a life not a relationship.
Take care of each other in the stars.August 27, 2020
I am glad you came back into Mum’s life all those years ago and in doing so we became a part of your life and family. You were the Dad I needed and in later years the Dad I wanted and even though we weren’t connected by blood or name, the bond and love we developed ran deep. At the moment, all I can think about is our loss and how much I am going to miss you, but I know it was your time and you were ready to join Mum.August 28, 2020

Uncle tom, growing up mum would say uncle tom has 12 days off and is coming up I would come home from school and pace the pavement watching for you and flora to arrive. We would sit out on the verandah in the sun chatting and listening 2 the footy on your pocket radio. I’ll alway remember these times and will never forget you. Love you heaps hope you flora mum and George will have a huge party togetherSeptember 2, 2020

Uncle Tom!September 2, 2020
You are a true Gentleman! Not only have been there for Mum & Dad you were always there for me as well! You always came to my place and helped out with dad when he would come on sundays and I’ll never forget that, In every way you will be Sadly missed! You watched Bec and myself grow up thru the years and also our kids, everytime you always had a smile and never a bad thing to say no matter what the situation. Truely going to miss you mate
He is gone you can shed tears that he is gone or you can smile because he has lived, you can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he’s gone or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back or you can do what he’d want smile, open your eyes, love and go on.September 2, 2020
