    Warm, kind hearted and generous in every sense, we greeted each other by the other’s surname which was an expression of the warmth and humour we enjoyed over the years. You will be missed “Mr. Morris” (as we teased each other)
    “Go rest high Gren, your place is reserved in your heavenly home “ I’m sure the Lord will welcome you with open arms saying‘ ‘well done my trusted and faithful child’ – Rest In Peace

    May God’s Grace give strength and comfort to all who you leave behind for now. You will be remembered as a wonderful gentlemen and a shining light of St. Peter’s Catholic Church. You always served Jesus and did what’s right for Him here on earth. Heaven must certainly hold God’s Golden Door open and His angelic music is playing for you to be received into your eternal resting place.

    I have many fond memories of Uncle Grenville, all of which revolve around his dedication to and love for his family. From visiting after uni to be greeted by him in the kitchen, lovingly preparing dinner, to the pride on his face after Tracy gave birth to Duncan. What an incredible impact he’s left on so many; he will be terribly missed.

    Loving, caring, thoughtful and fiercely loyal. Friends for life is what you said even if we didn’t meet as often. I will always remember how you made me feel welcomed when I arrived in Melbourne and took the time to take me out for dinner. You were a constant in our family milestones and you will be dearly missed. RIP Gren till we meet again and be friends eternally.

    My deepest condolences and heartfelt wishes to the Collin’s family.
