Thanks Trevor and Marion for taking me on that Trip along the Great Ocean Road in 1995. I had no idea how far it was, but Trevor and Marion as always both selflessly offered to take me and it was a massive day and poor Trevor was buggard at the end of it. Yet he never said a thing. Its a great week on the farm despite Trevor’s teasing. But I was warned. The years go quick, it just seems like the other day.September 1, 2021
David in Queensland now.
Dear Marion, Monica, Karen and familiesAugust 31, 2021
What a lovely tribute and send off for Trevor.
It feels like so long ago we moved in as your Happy Valley neighbours. Summer 1983!
Your first visit, Marion with a German apple cake and a warm welcome. The second – with a roll of carpet for our caravan annexe – as our 10 month old daughter Ani was crawling on a dirt floor. And yes, we were one of the neighbours Trevor came out to – his tractor to pull our tractor from the dam.
Many shared cuppas when our children were small. We drifted apart when we left Linton but Ballarat was not too big and we managed to bump into each other occasionally.
Trevor always had that twinkle in his eye and a wry expression – as if he was sharing a private joke about something he’d just seen or heard. Sending our love
Jacky, Olly and family.
Marion, Karen and Monica, that was a wonderful goodbye. Claire, was such a brave girl.
Watching and listening let me know more about the man – my dear bear and will always be shorty when thinking about the fun we had, than I knew.
I am glad that Jim and I had a wonderful time with you both, sad to have been
such a short time.
We send lots of love and hugs – love you both xoxoAugust 28, 2021
We didn’t see you very often, the distance is to far away. I think about our speeches, when Marion and I where playing rummy cup. You said doppel doofe. We had a lot of fun, you gave me a folder of the Australian birds, I have it up to now and use it often. We feel with Marion and the whole family. For the grandchildren it must be horrible to loose the loves grandpa. We are very sad.August 27, 2021
