  1. My prayers have been with all of you over the past while in particular and also whilst your Dad was in hospital. You have so many special memories to hold onto forever and he will be near you always. Love and prayers to you, love from Bernadine and Mark.

  2. What a privilege it was to be able to attend Col’s service today, albeit remotely.
    He would have been so proud, that with grief in your hearts, all of you managed to share some thoughts and experiences of a lovely man. I only met Col a few times but I instinctively perceived him as a warm, proud and dignified gentleman. His legacy resides in the family he has raised, and the values he instilled in them. We all become better people from knowing men like Col. I wish you all the best and hope we can all catch-up sometime in the future.

  17. To Mrs Godfrey Steve Garry Fiona Chris and your Families,

    Thinking of you today as you lay your Husband, Dad and Grandpa to rest. It’s not an easy thing to do. Remember all the good times that you have been able to share with him. Even though he is not here in body he will still be keep alive in each and every one of you so celebrate is life in style. Cry that he’s gone from this world, reminisce and laugh about times gone by. Memories last for ever….
    I will miss seeing him at family functions that you have and also on New Years Eve. His cheeky smile will always remain with me. Lots of love big hugs and kisses to you all. Adrian Jodie Bryce Beth Noah Darcy Amber Ashleigh Jake Lochlan Sam Myles and Phoebe xoxox
