  15. Vale Billy. Lots of wonderful memories come flooding back of good times especially in our late teens & early 20’s. You drove me to the church the day I got married – precious! Many evenings spent at our place with lots of story telling, jokes & laughter. we then caught up recently again when Bernie was ill & spent an afternoon reminiscing and catching up also sharing our love of fishing and in the same rivers near Bairnsdale. You will be sadly missed by all of this crew but very fondly remembered.
