You brought so much light and love and joy to the people around you. Rest easy Poppy, we love you.  Maggie.


Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.



Dad, you were my guide and support in life and I’m heartbroken you have gone. You will forever be in my heart. The brightest star in the night sky.  I love you and will miss you enormously.

Dear Ann and family

We were deeply saddened to learn of John’s death. Our deepest sympathy to you and all your family, and we will keep you in our prayers. May God give you strength. We have very fond memories of your wonderful friendship and support during our earlier Kangaroo Flat days.

John and Jenny Moore and family.

Lynn SMITH shared

To mourn too long for for those we love – is self indulgent, but to honour their memory, with a promise to live a little better for having known them, gives purpose to their life and some reason for their death.

Fondly remembered gentle, caring man who gave readily to his family, the community and to his friendships
Our love to Ann, Emma, Dan, Amy, treasured grandchildren, John and Mandy, as well as immediate and extended families.
The Smith’s of Blackburn
