Dear Dad / Hilly / Pardy, to so many. All my friends called you Pardy. You adopted and accepted everyone into our crazy family including Rasa, Carla & Cecile, all overseas. You made it clear you weren’t too happy when Lance whisked away your only daughter at seventeen years of age, however (40 plus years later), he worked out ok! Phew!!!

You showed your love and support in the practically perfect way by getting in and getting the job done, big or small with your helpmate, Mum, by your side. Even in your last week before you went to hospital you were there helping me make a clothesline for Dal so her washing would be protected under the eaves. You showed more of your love by becoming very teary in the last few months as you didn’t want to leave us. You wore your heart on your sleeve as all your love poured out in our times together towards us and all our extended family and friends who came to visit you. This alone was a testament to you.

Determined, proud and strong as a Cedar on the outside and emotional, warm and soft on the inside. You never showed any fear as you knew you were going home to rest in Heaven with God and to join the numerous other family and friends that have gone before. You leave a huge, gaping hole in our hearts and lives, Dad, however our love knows no bounds, Forever in our hearts. Glennys, your devoted daughter & Lance, grandchildren, Dallys-Krystian, Ryan, Courtney, Maddison; and partners, Justin, Brad & Merrik; and great grandchildren Arielle-Taimanii, Angelina-Aroha & Alliyra-Aramoana & bubba due around your birthday!

It is with great sadness that I heard the news that one of the hardest
working people had passed away. To everybody, I give my sincere condolences, especially Glennys, Dave, and Aunty Bev. Hopefully I can attend but due to the fires, I’m not sure. All my love and best wishes to those who will miss Hilly so much.xxx

To Dave Trish Bev and all your family. Our thoughts are with you in your time of grief. You have lost a beautiful soul, his time here is over. I know he will be greatly missed but he is free. He’s probably already looking for a team to coach. Until we meet again.

Sad to see good old Hilly leave us. My memories of Hilly was riding the unlicensed motorbike up the dirt road next to the old house on Wingham Rd and Hilly pulling fat little Emo aside while being the shittest player with Zebras U13's and telling me to get in there and I'm doing a good job (some 44 years ago). Sadly missed old boy. See you up there one day with the old Zebra's Footy Club.

My airport chauffeur, call whenever I needed, handyman extraordinaire, cheeky Pardy! Words can’t describe how much my heart aches from missing you! You were my best pal and were always there when I needed you. I know though, that in the end what you needed most was to rest peacefully in heaven. I know that you are watching down on us each and every day, you even made my shower leak the other day just so I had to learn to fix it myself hehe. All I ever wish is for one more day with you but I know you’re here with me every day. I loved you then, I loved you now and I’ll love you forever more, your sportie Courtie and Bard xxxx
