My dearest and most loyal brother, I will forever cherish those short special moments we shared and those words of wisdom you instilled into my heart, I will forever hold close to my heart, you gave me inspiration and strength to fight on and with dignity that I am forever grateful for, of all the people in our family you were the one to believe in me and never to push me aside and I am so thankful that I got to share those precious words we shared just before you decided it was time to go to heaven and I know your spirit will be around all of us and I’m so very happy and thankful for your presence around that I’m so sure both you and Mary will be watching over your family with love and happiness.Brian a beautiful big hug and a big thanku for being there for me which I will cherish forever.

  3. To all the family thinking of you at this sad time only was talking to Brian a month ago and will cherish that chat a beautiful kind man.

  4. Hard to believe we sat next to you a week ago for our bowls breakup.
    To a wonderful man who made me welcome at bowls. Always ready for a talk about Jack C.

  5. To Brett, Sally, Lisa, Jodie and your families, I send my love and condolences at this time to you all. I was so fortunate to work with Brian (and Sally) at the tech school. Brian was a beautiful and genuine man, and after he retired, whenever we bumped into each other, we always shared in hearty conversation re our families and life in general, and I always walked away from those chats with a smile on my face. Sorry I can’t make it tomorrow as we now live near the Gippsland lakes, I will watch the service online.
