  3. Dear Beau & Cherene,

    Sending you both our sincere condolences on the passing of your father.
    We remember many happy times in the 70s & 80s when we would visit & you to us.
    We shared many a conversation & debate on many deep & thought provoking subjects, none ever solved. Greg always had his head & heart in his love for nature & we’re sure his last project was his most fulfilling.
    With much love to you both at this sad time

  5. What a sad loss to those who new him, and to the wider communities about which he cared so much, and whom he so lovingly embraced. From the moment I met both of you, Janet, I detected an unimpeachable integrity and a wondrous, shared vision for the environment you each loved so much. Greg and you saw this shared vision to its completion at the property you transformed with such tendance and unstinting labour.

    Greg was determined to make a difference on a broad scale. He and you achieved just that.

    I am emotionally bereft at the loss of a man I consider to have been a great Australian. In this, and many other ways, you were perfectly matched. It was beautiful relationship he shared with you. I have rarely. if ever, encountered two people so palpably in love.

  6. Janet and Family
    Thinking of you during this difficult time, my sincere condolences to you. It was an honour to have known Greg as a work colleague and a friend. I shared many memorable moments with Greg on trips away for work. I have many wonderful memories of Greg and one in particular was Greg on stage in Warrnambool doing karaoke to Johnny Cash ring of fire.
    RIP Greg.
