  1. Dearest Rose and Charles,
    What a beautiful service with the memories and stories of Keith’s life and achievements. I too have wonderful memories of my time spent with you in 1999/2000 at your lovely home and garden, going to Reading football games with me and Brian when you came to the UK and eating the famous club curry pie. Our children had the pleasure to spend those visits learning from Keith’s knowledge and wisdom ( even if he did teach them some naughty words! )
    He will be greatly missed
    Love and hugs to both Lots of love from The Mann Clann xx

  2. Dear Rose, Charles, your extended family and friendship network,

    I have rewatched the speeches and am still in awe at the amount of genuine love and friendship that Keith had clearly generated.

    The speeches were well coordinated, uplifting, informative, and effusively loving.

    Recently, I’ve been reflecting as an adult and father on my childhood, with Keith acting as a second dad for a number of years (and Charles as a brother), I have a much deeper appreciation of the intrinsically positive impact he had on my sense of self. The things said today reiterated this for me.

    While my time spent with Keith since childhood has been sporadic, the positive memories remain emblazoned upon the deepest receptacles of my mind, heart and soul.

    Vale, Keith.

  3. What a wonderful service, a true reflection of Keith’s life provided by those who loved him so well. We were deeply moved and wished that we could have been with you at this time. Always in our thoughts. With fondest love. Charles and Fran

  4. Dear Rose, I watched the wonderful memorial service for Keith. It was very well done and I shed quite a few tears remembering the happy times we all had together. Mike used to love his fishing trips on the bay with Keith even though he often got seasick!
    Maybe they are somewhere together sharing a laugh now!,
    Love, Lyn Owen

    Dearest Rose and Charles
    It has been my privilege to be with you today, from the UK, sharing the most wonderful tributes to Keith’s life. I am just so sad I couldn’t be with you in person.
    Keith, and of course dearest Rose, have been among my most treasured friends for a long time and we have shared such happy times, both in Australia and the UK, whenever the opportunities arose.
    To Keith, who I first met 50 years ago, in Melbourne in December 1972, I may not use such long words as you, I may not have shared all of your interests and passions, but there were many things that you, Rose and I shared a love of and the pride I have, in being considered your friend, will stay with me for ever.
    Wasn’t that a certain MG of mine, you were posing in front of, in the pictures? Passing it off as your own I guess! Love you!
    RIP dearest Keithy, I’ll miss you!

  6. Condolences to Rosemary and Charles. Fond memories of times shared while I was based at the Jan Lake Centre, Bayside Special Developmental School.

  7. Keith was clearly one of a kind and admired by many, including Bill and I. They don’t make them like that any more! Those who were at one with nature, fishing and hunting yet so intelligent and articulate. Rose, you and Keith were such a great pair – wonderful hosts, always kind, engaging and interested in others. We shall miss those stimulating conversations and the laughter. Go gently Rose and Charles. Love always, Katrina and Bill xox

  8. Lovely ceremony Rose and Charles, you both spoke beautifully and Keithy would be so proud, love Jane and Matt xo

  9. Marcello and I was so lucky to have Keith in our life. He was amazing kind funny we love spending time at the football. I remember he was always nervous for each game, but I surely put a smile on his face. Keith you will be missed always and forever! rosemary sending all my condolences to you and your family and friends rest in peace, Keith

  10. We were lucky enough to have spent some wonderful times and celebrations with Keith. Alway such a happy, vibrant gentleman full of smiles, laughs and fabulous stories. He genuinely had an interest in what was going on in our lives and how we were doing. Itbrings great sadness that we will never get to experience these fun times with Keith again. But he will remain forever in our hearts and when thought of, bring a large smile to our faces. Hope you are up with John, sharing stories and watching over us.

  11. Keith was a real asset to special education. I am so sorry to suddenly left us. He was a tremendous colleague, especially when I was at Berendale. My very best wishes to the family. Tony T
