  1. To the Chambers Family,

    I am a parishoner at Dutch Neck Presbyterian Church in West Windsor, New Jersey where Rory has been serving only a short time as Associate Pastor for Youth and Community Ministry, and he has already impressed greatly by just his presence (albeit mostly virtually due to the present times). Having watched the tributes to his father, it is clear that his entire family helped shape him, each in his/her own personal way. You have created unique, blessed and blessing masterpieces of each other. How much greater the world is for it.

    While we may be half a world apart from each other, it is the love of God which defies time, distance, and dimension which connects us. May He comfort, strengthen, guide, and protect you during this transitional time, and may you also know that Rory as his family’s ambassador to our community rocks our church’s world. Thanks to Liam and to all of you for that. God bless you, Liam – you have left a most beautiful garden of legacy.

  2. What to say? These comments above are nearly testimony enough. What gentleness, joy and discerning yet non-judgmental love one can give – I’ve received that from Liam and his beautiful wife and am and will continue to be so grateful for this. Life is not always easy – so what relief it is to have friends such as this x

  3. Dear Marilyn and family,
    So very sorry for your loss. Liam was an inspirational man and a very gentle person.
    Our loving thoughts are with you all at this very sad time.
    Debbie, Jamie, Haleigh and Melanie Bonanno

  4. Dear Chambers – it was a real privilege to be part of that very heart felt service honouring Liam’s busy life! Marilyn’s opening talk was absolutely gorgeous. Will this be “published” later? The rest of the ceremony was so meaningful. Andy especially, loved that piece of James Taylor = another 1948’er of note!! On a personal note, Liam taught me the blues chords for the first time way back and introduced Sal to various string instruments! Very special! Love Andy and Jillian

  5. A beautiful tribute to Liam from all involved. Despite knowing it was coming, it is such a hard thing to pull together when the time comes. It is wonderful to have such loving and supportive family and friends – a true reflection of Liam and you all.

  6. Marilyn and family,

    Hugs from us at this very sad but life affirming time. Liam lived life to the full. Hopefully we can following in his footsteps.

  7. Dear Marilyn and family,
    So sad to hear of Liams illness and passing.
    Ed loved his big brother.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time.
    All our love, Carol and family.

  8. My 15 week old son Stanley and I watched the ceremony together this morning. Liam was such a positive male role model for me in my early years and had a beautiful influence on so many students and community members. I remember his bright and cheeky smile and his musicianship was a true inspiration. Thank you for allowing us to be part of this morning. Sending my love to Marilyn, Rory, Glynn and all the family. Love Sal and Stanley

  9. Sending our love. That was an amazing – you are blessed; we are blessed to have been part of his life and yours.

  10. A gentle soul that embodied all that this world truly needs right now- kindness. He and his kindness will live on through his humans, that he held so dear and so close.

  11. A beautiful service, and a lovely tribute to a wonderful man. I did not know him well, but as Rory explained so well, his legacy lives through his children, who have impacted many for the better, myself included. My love and thoughts to the whole family.

  12. My old school motto is gesta non verba, deeds not words. When I think of it I can’t help but think of the time I spent with Liam. I could not have done it without his selfless help and encouragement. Our love and thoughts are with you Maz and family. A wonderful man that will be missed.
    Gary and Elaine

  13. Liam, through your loving friendship and your actions, you have taught me how to respect others, how to love well and often and how to be generous. I will miss you always.

    Thankyou for allowing me to be a part of today. Sending you all my love Maz, and to the whole family.

    Much love always,
    Grace

  14. I will miss seeing Liam’s smiling face at Atisha Centre, and his request for chocolate biscuits at morning tea time. I will have a Tim Tam or two tonight in his honour. My thoughts and prayers are with you Marilyn and family.

  15. Thankyou for allowing me to join in on the celebration of Mr. Chambers life. It was a beautiful service, may he Rest In Peace and all my love to the family.

  16. ‘Goodbye Dear Liam’ I will miss seeing you up at Atisha Centre. Our chats and jokes and just being in each others company over a cup of tea or working with you. I did not realise how many things you accomplished in your life and how many people’s hearts you touched in such a positive way. A good human being. Love to you Marilyn and Family. X

  20. Thanks Liam for your friendship, kindness and positive nature. Rejoicing always in your contributions to Atisha Centre and to making a difference in the world. My favourite quote of Liam’s was ‘Every day do your best and give of your best self’.
    May you have a safe transition from this life, obtain a perfect human rebirth or go to a pure land of your choice. To continue growing and benefiting many people.
    Maz and family, kind thoughts and love to you all at this time.

  50. Thank you for the wonderful tributes today – and your strong words Marilyn – there are so many great and funny memories. There was even that photo of Pattersons with a much younger version of myself – a reminder of the many, many aspects of Liam, Killara included. Liam was certainly amazing – he was able to do and be so many different things. His incredible tenacity, drive, belief in people and that ‘get it done attitude’. Your team work and the love you each brought to your relationship – which is so evident in the lives of your children, your extended family and in all that you have achieved. What a life! Lots of love – xx

  51. I will always be grateful for Liam’s support for me personally and for his contribution of skills and labour for our monastery. It was a priviledge to know him. My best wishes and prayers to family and friends.

  52. Whilst we didn’t know Liam well, we knew when we first met him at Atisha Centre at the first retreat with Rinpoche in 2011 what a generous & kind person he was. And the same goes for Marilyn, who we also met then. We know he was truly loved & will be missed. But we also believe that he will have a good rebirth & will continue to benefit sentient beings wherever he is reborn. We have been including him in our prayers but we know that he has done so much good in his life that he probably doesn’t need them! Our thoughts & prayers are with all his family & friends. I’m sure we will all meet up in the future in some life somewhere again. Big hugs & love

  53. I will always remember the joy and confidence that his teaching presence brought to the very young and bouncy students at the Daylesford Dharma School during its early years. Walking into his multiage classroom there was the presence of being well held, skilfully guided, and ready for a great adventure that always included singing, live music and the true joy of learning.
    This joy extended into his presence at Atisha Centre where he was a repeat offender and a welcomed presence! …Always stepping back onto the Dharma boat to crew it through the turbulent, the picturesque or clear waters that we sailed on together.
    Travel well Liam into your next perfect human rebirth. Om Ah Hung.

  54. It is a great privilege to have known Liam and we send our love to the whole Chambers family on this day. Farewell good friend,
    John and Deborah

  55. Blessings on you all, especially Maz, Glynn & Jaz as you farewell a husband, a dad, a grandfather, a friend, and a legend of a bloke. We have very fond memories of Liam as our journeys have intertwined over the years. May peace and comfort be yours as you remember him.
    With much love from Tim, Laurie and the kids

  56. Ian Carruthers: Liam and I had a wonderful understanding of each other.
