That was a beautiful service, thank you to you all for making it possible for us to see.
It is with saddened heart that we were not able to be with the family for Brian’s final farewell.
A very much loved Brother and Uncle to Mandy and Katie, and great Uncle to Dylan. There are so many memories we will cherish, even living in different states, it was like we had never left when we went home for Christmases when the girls were young. Brian and Ellen always made us welcome into their home, and yes it was noisy chaos but everyone was so happy and loving.
We will miss you deeply Brian, Rest In Peace, forever in our hearts. Say hello to Mum and Dad and Roger for us . Irene, Mandy, Nick and Dylan, Katie and Rusty xx
Thinking of you and your family today Ellen. May you find comfort in your many family, friends and neighbours at this sad time. Rest in peace Brian.

Condolences to the whole family.
Brian was a great bloke and was always ready to lend a hand or offer advice when needed.
A great mentor and friend to all of us, generous with his time and always felt welcome at the Gossip house.
Farewell our good friend, neighbour and fellow fire fighter. You will be sorely missed by us, all the brigade and your wonderful family.
Deepest condolences to the Findlay / Gossip Family.
We have the fondest memories of Brian whilst away camping. Enjoying a drink around the fire telling stories talking shit is the way we will remember you.

Our thoughts are with you all on this shit day. Brian will be missed by many. I will miss the nights around the camp fire either at Linton or Hawqua putting down a few stubbles with this great bloke. Always remembered mate.
Dearest Jac, Bindy, Ellen and the rest of the Gossip clan.
In reading Gwen’s lovely post, I reiterate the ‘Dad’ definition too!!! Oh my, Brian was just the loveliest larrikan you can imagine and always, always, just so proud of his brood and all of their endeavors. His banter and sense of humor will be missed. Simon and I send our heartfelt condolences to you all during this time and we are very much wishing we could be with you all today to share in this celebration of his wonderful life.
Our deepest condolences are with you all during this very emotional time. May love and beautiful memories help you all through this time and the years to come. Thinking of you all today xx

I met Brian on the train into the city one Saturday afternoon last year. He was pretty happy to be meeting his grandchildren to go to the footy.
My thoughts are with Ellen and the family today.
Brian what can I say Mate.you were the go to person for me Ben and your Godson James in the early days. they both remember your advise and support.
My wing man on our trips. I was lucky to have had wonderful caravanning holidays will Ellen and Brian in the last few years. Around the water at Lara, without the water on our last trip.
Ellen Russell Jackie Bindy and Matthew, know that he was appreciated, loved and will be sadly missed
We are blessed to have known Brian. A beautiful man who meant so much, to so many. Our sincere condolences to Ellen, Russell, Jacqui, Bindy, Matthew, their respective partners and the gaggle of beautiful grandchildren, who brought Brian so much joy. So incredibly generous of you all to share him with us. We will think of Brian often, and will never forget him. With all our love Ally & Nate
Brian was a typical Aussie bloke who worked hard in his life to achieve what every man desires in life – a good career, a good woman, a good family and good friends… with these in mind comes the titles in life that Brian earned… a loved brother, Husband, Dad, Uncle, brother-in-law, work mate and to some a friend… and now a time for an extended nap!
We are blessed to have known this wonderful man. A man who took on the definition of “Dad” in every way. His dry wit, his wry smile. We are all blessed to have him in our lives. We are grateful that he was able to come to Vermont and enjoy life, grace us with his love of family, love of life and love of Ellen.
Ellen, and all of his children and loved ones. Our hearts are broken. Philip and I wish we could be there to hug you and celebrate his life.
In loving memory of Brian Gossip from the friends of his daughter Jackie Gossip in America at team for kids and friends of Turtle! RIP and our deepest condolences.
From your friends, In the USA
Beautiful service SIS & Family
