  4. This was meant to be read out at the funeral. Not received in time.

    My visits to my brother was
    great fun.
    We worked in his rose garden, tramped over the hills to find where Grandpa and Grandma Williams had their farm house.
    There were still a few bulbs that were flowering where the house used to be.
    I dug up a Belladonna bulb to take home and plant in my garden.

    The other joy for me, was going down to the Mineral Springs
    to see the trees, and go to see the old swimming pool and the spillway
    Even had a picnic in the Rotunda.

    These were the times Wally was putting together the little red train.
    He used to ride on it when he was a young fellow, when he was up on holidays with his dad.

    Thursdays was always lunch at Subway, grocery shopping, a meal at his favourite pub, then off to Band Practice.

    He loved getting the old house up to scratch with new fly screens that had never been put in, and made them to fit all windows.
    Painting, varnishing all doors, repairing sheds that lent in the wind.
    Very handy with his hands, and could repair most things that did not work.

    Loved his time in Thompson’s Brass band, and being lead Cornet player.

    Loved sitting in front of the open fire with “Meow’ on his lap.

    Sorry I could not be there today to say ‘Goodbye’.
    Say ‘Hello’ to our father, love Wendy
