  1. While sharing this beautiful farewell to Adrian, I kept on praising God for the family that He sent Adrian to, and for allowing me to become part of it from the day I married Angus. You welcomed me then and I feel you still keep me in your hearts now, for what I’ll be ever so grateful! As for Adrian, he gave his happiness, cheekiness, and love to each person he befriended or smiled to, so it’s easy to guess the sound of Heavenly Joy that your parents must have felt when Adrian walked into His Kingdom. Such are Our Lord’s ways: tears of farewell down here, and at the same time songs of Joy Up there!
    My prayers and sincere love for all of Adrian’s family,

  9. What a brilliant tribute to a gorgeous man!

    Adrian was a strong, kind, cheeky, bossy and gentle soul all rolled into one.

    I was always greeted with a kiss on the cheek and Adrian never failed to ask me how I was and how my family was and that “ Maria says hello”.

    Rest In Peace my beautiful man x

  10. It is such a privilege to have witnessed the palpable love that Adrian and his two families shared.How blessed Adrian was, as were they, to have such a ray of sunshine bestowed upon them.I love that Adrian was the best dancer in his family (as was our Jennifer) I am also delighted as a cousin of Adrian’s that I too can claim John Farnham. Congratulations to the Hede family on such a beautiful love filled tribute to Adrian. Love and strength to all who love and will miss Adrian.

  20. Adi, I wished we could have all come together to celebrate your amazing life. You have made people laugh with your amazing personality. You were strong, confident, funny, sarcastic, loyal and outspoken…the perfect combination. Will never forget you. You affected everyone you met. Will never forget the day Kathy and yourself put on a show in front of a busker in the Bourke Street Mall. You danced your hearts out and made people stop to watch. People were smiling and clapping and you were both so joyful together. I loved the prankster in you and it was always a house full of laughter when you were there. Have a peaceful journey wherever you are. Miss you Adi…..Suzanne

    I had the great joy and privilege of spending time with Adrian at Lisson Grove. He was amazing, vivacious, cheeky yet so gentle and kind.

    I remember taking Adrian and Kathy out into the city together. We came across a busker in Bourke street
    and Adrian swooped into action gathering Kathy up in his arms and danced, ballroom style majestically around the pavement to the music.
    A crowd formed drawn to their guileless and joyous display of life
    They were in their own world

    I miss you Adrian and thankyou for everything you taught me

    Much love xxxxx
