  11. On behalf of the late Les Lenehan we extend our sympathy and prayers to Claire and family at this time. The courage Mick showed in attending Les’ funeral last September, even thought it was difficult for him, was a testament to the man he was. Les always appreciated the friendship he enjoyed with Claire and Mick. Take care.

  16. Deepest Sympathy to Claire , Judy, Dan, Maryanne, Jane, Emily & families of the loss of Mick who was such a kind, thoughtful man who always put others before himself. We are saddened to hear of his passing we enjoyed his company often when we were back in Colac when he would call in at dads home.

  27. To Claire, Maryanne and families. I it was a pleasure, being part of Michael’s life. I have one particular memory of Michael. Whilst, sanding letter holders ( for mother’s day) during Men’s group activity. Michael spoke of his working life. Starting off as an apprentice, working his way through. To eventually, Colac Body Panels. The men enjoyed, listening, to one another and so did I. To hear them talk of their life experiences. The most humbling part of their conversation thou, was their love for their families 👪 ❤. Maryanne, I hope you received the photo, I took of Michael that day. A lovely memory 💖. Please share the photo with mum and your family. My love to you, Clare and Maryanne. Also condolences to all your family 👪.
