    Worty, sad news to hear last night of your sad loss.
    Deepest Sympathy to your Beautiful Mum, Bub, Kate, Louise, Maria and extended Family.
    When I think of John, I recall times in the Kitchen at Basset Street or sharing a Beer at the Carriers Arms on a Friday night many years ago. I will always remember that stern look he would try to maintain with us when we were teens & young men, but a beaming smile would soon break out when we would quickly make him laugh.
    That’s the Memory I will have of your Dad, a well respected man a very proud Father & Grandfather who always welcomed your friends to your home as long as we respected that privilege.
    Please give my love to you Mum, will be thinking of you all on the 24th as sadly I wont be able to attend.
    Great Man, Great Family & Great Memories
    Pete & Deb Vague
