    My mind knows that you
    Are in a better place,
    Where there is no pain.
    You are at peace.
    I understand that,

    To my heart.

  6. Geoff and his family made many happy times for me – many meals and cups of tea shared and enjoyed together. I was always welcome as Anita’s friend, as a child and for many years after. Geoff knew so much – from natural things to highly technical. And there was a deep love of God behind this. Thanks for sharing those times with me. A life is made of many moments, and those moments were special.

  9. So Sorry to hear of Uncle Geoff’s passing. I looked up to him as a role model who helped me develop a sense of curiosity and an Engineering mindset. Jackie, Sonja, Eric, and I still fondly remember visiting from America some years back and having a lovely lunch.

  10. Dad, thank you for teaching me so many things, including:
    • The wonderful smell of messmate and peppermint (closely followed by snowgum in the rain).
    • Not everybody can make a grey snowman.
    • It’s warmer in the water than out, when sailing on Hazelwood Pondage.
    • Do it with flair if you can – but just do it.
    • Look to the stars (even if you’ve left your telescope inside).
    • Don’t just ask, find out for yourself. Be curious.
    • “Listen” and “do” doesn’t only apply to music. Be open to the new.
    • Working hard and smart can get you places.
    • Take time to stop and listen to the world. You don’t have to run to keep up.
    I will do my best to apply these lessons – and the other ones – to my life. Thank you for everything Dad.
