    Angel, your pseudonym was perfect and so fitting. Rarely, so very rarely, have I known any person to be as caring, compassionate and thoughtful as you. You cared for your cats, your family and the people you cared for so very well.

    I appreciated and enjoyed our phone calls. How I would have loved to have shown you my Johnny Cash Room where I sat or stood to chat with you. Thank you so much for your interest and so much more for your friendship.

    I have a phrase I use, a rather ordinary one but one which conveys my highest praise. “You’re a good man, mate.”

    You will be sorely missed but never forgotten. I admire so much your quiet, humble, stoic, and quite heroic acceptance of your circumstances and your other-centredness: your care for those around you.

    I would like to think that one day I might be 10% of the man you’ve been. Thank you.

    Vale, Chris Kaabar. I hold you in the highest esteem. Bless you.

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
    Love leaves a memory no one can steal

    We have fond memories of Christopher from the day he was borne and all the times he had in Hospital as a youngster to fight what was a real battle to live to a teenager. He made it and was an inspiration to all, we never got to know him after that but know how well he succeeded to have wonderful friends and a family who loved him so much. Doff and Frank would have been so proud of him as their nature Grandson. God bless him as he left such a mark on all those who were blessed to ever meet him .

    To my nephew Chris Angel. A few parting thoughts from Uncle Graham:

    “Angels sail back to God on the sea of joy.” – Terri Guillemets

    You lived your life on your terms and wendt through So much but had some great experiences, were loved as you and, although you died with many of your dreams inside you, you were finding your path in life at last.

    I remember trying to wake you up in the mornings when I stayed at Glenda’s … now I REALLY wish I could … I still can’t bear to delete your last voice message 🙁 There is a reason MISS and CHRIS rhyme I guess?

    Your laconic greeting. “Oh ….. Hi, how are you?” will be long remembered.

    You may never know it was me rearranging the letters A E G L N on your window sill many times to tease you but GLEAN and ANGLE never suited … A N G E L did!

    To others reading this, I offer you the Irish blessing, “May your neighbors respect you, trouble neglect you, the angels protect you, and heaven accept you.”

    Angel was a caring soul to those at Samarinda Aged Services. As a visitor I got to meet Angel as he worked in the dining room. He was always so helpful, and pleasant to talk to. Condolences to his Family and Friends.

    Wow the last couple weeks have been have been hard. I keep expecting to get a message from you at a ridiculous hour when we both would generally be awake because we can’t sleep, or you sending me cat photos of Totoro, or Moo with one of her many collections of things she’s found and dragged back to one of her spots. I keep finding small things I’ve kept like all the things with stickers you would send me, or the extra things you would just throw in the packages like cardboard cutouts of hearts. I found a CD and my mind went instantly to you. I still remember when we reconnected, despite hanging out a couple times randomly years before, when we ended up dating siblings from the same family at the same time, and how that all that ended – and just having that support from a place of being there during that time, and from that ending up with an amazing friend who just understood. We didn’t have to fake happy, or feeling well. There was never any judgement and if either of us was quiet for a while there was no resentment and we would just pick up where we left off, or check in with cat pics and memes – I’m going to miss that. Being your friend was an honour, and I really am grateful for everything. I’m sorry we never ended up getting to go for a coffee once the pandemic eased. I hate not knowing how to end this, and that it really does mean goodbye. Just – thank you for everything.

    To Angel’s family I just wanted to give my biggest condolences once again, the service was beautiful.
