  11. Dearest Auntie Bev and family, our love and thoughts are with you during this very sad time. “Uncle Blue” (as we fondly knew him) was a gorgeous, genuine and kind man. He had that unique ability of making everyone feel special. I’ll never forget that ‘always smiling face’, his positive outlook and tremendous sense of humour. My best memories are of all those laughing fits we had together. He was a fantastic and loyal friend to us all.The bond he had with Dad was such a special one. They were the best of mates. Always in our hearts. Much love, Julie and Paul Nixon
