I will hear your voice no more.

I hope we have the strength to

As we struggle with the heartache

  3. We are sad that our across the road neighbour, George will no longer be coming over for a chat, a coffee or helping with a handyman project. George told us many stories of his childhood growing up in Pakenham. He was meticulous and very proud of his workmanship and generous with his knowledge. Without doubt a very kind neighbour. He would often just run over the nature strip while he was mowing his of drop in some fresh eggs. He would sit on the front verandah and have a chat with Doug just to pass the time. We will miss the wave as he drove or walked by. George was passionate about cars and loved nothing more than “opening her up”. A true “never stopped working man” who adored and was very proud of his children and grandchildren. To Travis, Kim and Warren, Tahlia, Ellie and Liam, we send our love. See ya mate – Doug and Judy (Whyte)

Kim on a personal note I just wanted to tell you that I was talking to Andrew about George and he remembered him so fondly from all those years ago when working at van steensel timbers.
