Life dealt you a cruel hand in 1987. You came back fighting and won.
Same hand again in 2008. You came back fighting and won.
Same hand again in 2018. Again, you fought and fought.
Some may say you lost this time. Far from true – you won.
The courage and dignity with which you fought, won the love, respect and admiration of all who watched the fight.
Loving you always Heath.
Fly High Dad forever remembered – Paul.
I will always love you Pop – Shanique.
Thank you for being an awesome dad and pop to us.
Everything was fun and a cruise with you – no fuss.
We have had fun fishing and holidaying with you.
BBQs and beer in the backyard will not ever be the same.
You were so brave and never gave up.
We will miss you so much but we know you are at peace now.
You will always be in our memories.
Megan, Laurie, Ruby and Byron
