Dear Rob, Jen & family,
What wonderful photos, and eulogy delivered by Tim. Shows what an amazing life Kevin and Elva lived. Thank you for letting me be a part of the service, and getting to know your Dad. My heart goes out to you all during this very sad time of loss. There are clearly many fond memories of your Dad, and in the meantime, what a beautiful, enormous family he has left behind!!
Thinking of you all xx
Lovely service and great send off for your Dad. Photos were wonderful. One amazing life.
Lots of love Pete, Les, Jules and Clay
Dear Rob and family it was such a beautiful service. I so loved learning about your wonderful dad and his amazing life. His love for his family was so evident, the photos showed this clearly. You will all have great memories which will last forever. We are all thinking about you at this time.
Rob, Nise and all the family – sending my condolences – the service was so special and a fitting tribute and celebration of a life well lived. It was obvious your Dad was so well loved, respected and cared for especially at the end of his life.
Lovely service and a fitting farewell to a much loved family member. Thoughts to you all.
Thank you for all your beautiful comments. There may have been only 10 of us at the send off for Dad,but we were all very aware of your presence with us and took great comfort in this.
What a truly lovely service. Many blessings to count amidst the sadness and so lovely Kevin knew you all right to the end. Tim’s words were delivered so beautifully and it was great to hear what a rich life he had; a long and happy marriage, family, interests, work, sports and travel.
Dear Auntie Elv, Jen & Tim, Sue & Andy, Nise & Damien, Rob & Nick, Marty & Noy, and all your amazing kids and grandkids, we send our thoughts to you on this sad occasion of your loss and ours. Thank you for such a wonderful tribute to our beloved Uncle Kev. So much in keeping with the man we knew. And so full of things that we didn’t know! Life at the moment seems very small compared to the life that Kev and Elva have lived together. The service was truly a celebration of life and love, family and goodness, achievement and faith. Well done!
We have just watched the photo montage, and are still smiling from that.
With all our love, John and Cathy Weir, Tom (who tuned in from Mexico City), Elea, Ed and Chris.
What a beautiful farewell for a much-loved person who obviously led a full and adventurous life. It was lovely to hear the stories of many exciting travels and Sue’s prayers were deep and beautiful.
My thoughts and prayers are with all the family.
Dear Elva, I really enjoyed the service. Thank you for including us. I loved looking at all the photos. They made it as much about you as Kev, which is as it should be.
To dear Rob, Nick, Maddie, Tess, John and all the family. What a full and wonderful life your Dad lived, he is an example to all of us. It was a lovely service. We are thinking of you all and hold you in our hearts and at this time of great loss we send you much love. Helen, Paul, Pascale, and Andre xxxx

The Mckenzie s Of Camberwell .
It was always great to see him and hear stories of camps and walks and trips.
He did love the prom and we loved camping on those Easter s with the field
Thinking of you all Elva Marty & all the Hines clan.
Love to all Lachlan Craig Olivia & Jan.
Dear Elva, Tim, Jen, Robyn and family,
It was a lovely service. I expect that Kevin would have liked it. Full of depth and meaning and a lack of ostentation, rather like Kevin himself.
Jen, you were very brave and opened the service so well. Tim, that was great eulogy. You did so well to hold it together. What a man he was. I never got to know Kevin really well, but you didn’t have to spend a lot of time with him to get a sense of him. Also, you spoke so warmly of him over the years. I expect there is a lot of him in Jen. Lovely tributes.
There is a line that I read in a book by Victor Frankl once which I have found of comfort when thinking about those close to me that have passed. “There is no surer form of being than ‘having been’;.” Our memories of times shared and of the person remain and are always with us, as if the person is still present but just in another room. Victor Frankl was jewish. We also have an even greater hope for the future, because of our faith in Christ.
What a beautiful tribute for your lovely Dad. So many wonderful memories to treasure. x
Our deepest condolences to Denise , Robyn and the Hine family
with love and regards,
George Awburn & Family
Beautiful service Robbie, our thoughts are with you and your family during this incredibly sad and difficult time.
Kellie, Dale and family xx
A lovely family and a beautiful device. Kevin would have been so proud of you all.
What a great service! Although of course we all couldn’t be there in person, we felt very included. I loved the harp playing. So wonderful to hear all about Kev and see and hear how much he was loved! I like your minister – very thoughtful chap. Wishing I could give you a hug right now. Will save it up. 🙂
A lovely service in difficult circumstances. what a great life of love and adventure the family have enjoyed with Kevin and Elva.
Kind regards and sympathy. Sue and Allan Voice
Remembering Kev’s gentle smile and dry wit, love of nature, meticulous mind, and palpable enjoyment of his family. Always interested and welcoming. Love to you all.
A beautiful service, what an amazing life, love to you all
A Christian funeral with hope: a beautiful way you’ve said goodbye.
We are with you there and in our thoughts.
Love to all. xo
Noy & Jack and our Thai family
A beautiful remembrance of a life well lived reflected best in the love and respect of his family. My love and thoughts to the Hine families.
A wonderful service for a Godly man!. Our prayers are with all of you
Dear Elva, Our love and prayers are with you and the family. God bless.
A privilege to be a part of Kevin’s memorial service.
Much love to all members of the family and especially our dear friends Jenny and Tim.
Dear Auntie Elv, our dear cousins and their families, we are there with you all today.
What a man and legend Uncle Kev was. He was an inspiration to all of us. Our mum and dad loved Uncle Kev and Auntie Elv so much, as do we.
Uncle Kev – always remembered and always loved,
Sincerely Pete, Mirella and family
With you in spirit at this time, dear Elva.
Dear Aunty Elv and Cousins and family. We are sitting here watching but standing with you in spirit and solidarity while we send off Uncle Kev. What a beautiful day for his farewell.
