  7. Uncle John,
    Thank you for the many memories , you bloody rascal, for the honour of driving me to my wedding, the sneaky visits to yinnar when Brooke and me lived there, the numerous calls from Melbourne hospitals, ” sketa, can you do this, sketa can you do that knowing full well you’d get me in enormous amounts of trouble. You’ve left a footprint in my heart that will remain eternally mine. The last four years have been a whirlwind and I’m so very sorry I didn’t get to hold your hand and kiss you good bye. Fly high now, you’re free from all pain and suffering , reunited with Aunty Karyn, Joanie and all your loved ones. Eternally missed sketa x x x

  17. John,
    I had the privilege of knowing you for a short period of time but in that time, you left a massive imprint on me.

    I will miss our banter and football conversations. You made my mornings that much brighter and I will forever be grateful that our paths crossed.

    You are now at peace and get to be reunited with your loved ones xx

    My thoughts are with all of Johns family at this time.
