To the love of my life Carol,

The moment that you left me,
my heart was split in two.
One side filled with memories,
the other with gratitude.

I thank you for your kindness
and the times we shared together.
All our special memories
that I’ll cherish now forever.

I’ll hold these memories in my heart,
as there they shall remain.
Though life goes on without you,
our bond will never wane.

Babe, my heart is truly broken, never to heal again. I love you always Carol.

– Pete xoxoxo

Mum/Nan, there are no words to describe the pain we currently feel. You loved us all unconditionally and were a constant support in our lives. We have so many cherished memories of good times spent at racetracks, Declan’s biggest fan cheering him along. The phone calls that started with “Hey Fred” or “Hey Darl”, and those that ended in a “love ya Poss”; we are going to miss the sound of your voice more than you will ever know, but will listen out for those kookaburra laughs that tell us you’re close by. There are no goodbyes from us, because wherever you are, you will forever be in our hearts.

Love always, Justin, Leah, Jaz and Dec.

  2. Dearest Carol, i have so many awesome memories of our times together living in condo are my most treasured ones. You took me under your wing and taught me so much about raising boys i couldnt have gotten through those younger years without the advice from a mum that also had 3 boys. We laughed everytime we got together and you always had words or encouragement that helped me more then you’ll ever know.
