  3. A man I will always love, honour, and cherish. A man I had the privilege of sharing a round of golf with. A man whom I could sit and talk to for hours and always marvel at the life he lived. A man who accepted me into his family and gave me permission to marry his daughter. A man I looked up to and saw as a second father. A man I will never forget. A man I loved. Condolences to Barbara, Michael, Alison, Jayne, Rhys, Courtney, Brady, Mikaela, and Mitchell.

  6. Losing you is beyond difficult, because I’ve never known my life without you.
    You’ve always been and will continue to be my hero, my role model, and my grandfather.
    Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me.
    I hope the courses upstairs are challenging enough for you Poppy.
    Rhys the first grandchild

  7. Writing this is difficult for me, because words can’t describe how I feel about losing you.
    I’ll always cherish the times I spent with you, and all the love and support you’ve blessed upon me.
    Hopefully when my story’s over, we’ll be able to share a drink together, but in the meantime, I will make sure to wear your name proudly, and always treasure it.

  8. I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that attended Dad’s funeral yesterday, live streamed it or sent so many well wishes and LOVE. Yesterday was very hard but I felt all the love around me near and far πŸ₯° Don’t know how I would have got through yesterday without all you amazing people whom I love so dearly. The service was very fitting and an absolute beautiful tribute to my father’s life. It was’nt an easy life but he always put family before anyone including himself.
    Dad I hope you are up in heaven with all your mates playing quite a few rounds of golf, which you haven’t been able to do for the last 18 month’s even with less than one lung, you are my legend my superstar and my inspiration to maybe find a healthier pathway in life πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ I love you so much and miss you just as much, until we meet again I will always hold our memories so close to my heart πŸ’œπŸ’”πŸ˜‡πŸ’œπŸ’”πŸ˜‡πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
