    Neil was indeed a very strong and reliable contributor to building the Cranbourne Friends of the RBG Victoria during its early years and he displayed excellent leadership as Treasurer, Vice President and President during that time and was awarded Honorary Life Membership in recognition for performing his various roles so well.

    Also it should not be neglected in saying that your and the children’s support was also very valuable during Neil’s active time with the Friends.

    Thank you for your love and caring of myself and our family.
    Thank you for the fun and laughter we had together and with Lawrence, Imogene, Bronwyn and Tristan during the years.
    You have gone too soon and we are all lost without you.
    You will forever be in our hearts and minds.
    We know you will be watching over us ready to give advice.
    Till we meet again!

    Love Vickie

    Memories of our special brother/sister bond are kept forever in my heart and soul. Neil you simply cared about my life and family; you shared the strong love for your own family and extended it to mine; you taught me how to be passionate about what I believed in and how to laugh about the world we lived in; you have created an awesome family who will do you proud. Give big hugs to Mum, Dad and Garry. Now at peace Spidge. Love your baby sister Lynette
