Thank you Ambrose for your wonderful visits to dad, he enjoyed them so very much and in the latter years to mum at the nursing home. Thank you also for the fruit and vegetables you grew and generously gave away. You were like Father Christmas every day of the year. You will be sadly missed. Sympathy to Bett and the family.

  8. To dear Bett and family. Just learned of Ambies passing so wasn’t able to attend his funeral.
    He drove me to footy training and was my coach when I was a 13 year old, all those years ago. Got lovely memories of a terrific guy.
    Thinking of you all.
