  7. It was at the Garfield Pub over a meal and random seat placing that we first met. A pair of strangers but you said g’day and chatted away. Your story telling was best seller novel material and I know you will be well remembered. You had the charisma to make others around you feel important. I never saw you ride mate, but god I hope you are galloping off into the sunset, cowboy hat and all!

  11. One of my most loved moments, standing in to cooking area of the shed. Cliffy behind the table, me passing him the onions from the fridge… spinning his yarn as he did to those willing to listen and he said to me “I wasn’t always just and onion cutter you know Jode”… and we both laughed a treat. Fly high dear friend, hopefully your up their riding your horses again. Much love to you Sharon and family at this time. xoxo

  16. It was a pleasure working with you the last few years and getting to know you Cliff. We were more than client and carer we became friends. I will miss our swimming days and getting your fish and chips for you, I will miss tickling your feet after your shower and you’d kick out and you’d say “whilst I’m doing that I know I’m still alive”. You’ll always be alive my friend because you’ll always be in my memories. Rest In Peace mate and enjoy the freedom of moving your cattle around and riding your horses.
