  20. My dearest Aunty Netts; Karen, Andrew, Hamish, Angus; Donna & Ham; Scott, Lauren, Jessica, Taylor & Thomas,
    Uncle Geoff will be dearly missed in so many ways 😭. I will miss him having a Guinness waiting for me to share with him on any special occasion that he called ‘our tradition’, which I participated in each time with a smile! I just never had the heart to tell him that actually didn’t like Guinness 🤣. I will have one for you on Friday Uncle Geoff!
    Lots of love ‘your neicey’ Rosie
