    1. Dear Aunty Isabel & Thelma.

      Thank you for your kind expression of sympathy. I will certainly miss my Nari till the end if my days on this earthly abode. Though it seems impossible, I will endeavour to cling to all those wonderful memories, if only I could erase the heartache of the last 20 months when Nari fought so valiantly.

      I am comforted by the fact that he’s resting peacefully in the Lord’s wonderful embrace with no pain and suffering.

  4. I had the pleasure of knowing Neil in GST. Like all the comments Neil was know as Mr Fantabulous, and the “Guru”. I will have treasured memories of assisting him with the 2nd Flr Tea Club and Neil organising the most memorable christmas morning teas for the 2nd flr from the tea club profits, the occasional trips to the dandy market with him having us in fits of laughter with his stories and whitty comments and even after he retired, him yelling out the window of his car at me walking into work and looking up only to see his marvellous smile. I also had a wonderful conversation with him last year at an ATO lunch and admired his courage and positivity. May I offer my sincere condolences to your family for the loss of such a rare gem of a gentlemen.

    1. Alison. Thanks for aptly referring to my soul mate a rare gem. He was a one in a million man, who I was blessed to have married. I am pleased that you shared your experiences with him. People always saw the two of us oldies walk to the market on weekends and he always chatted with people along the way. I shall miss him all the days of my life.

  5. I am Ganesh and was a colleague of Neil at tax office. Please accept my family’s sincere sympathies. Neil is a great personality. He is warm, smiling, calm, friendly, social minded and a good team player. A rare package you would come across. Neil organised at times single handedly our sectional social functions and never interest in favour or praise. Shocked many when we learned about his illhealth. Still he regularly catch up with friendly meals with friends even after he retired. So I met him an year ago over a meal with tax friends. He was still smiling and brave. He said I was working on it bravely. I admired his positive attitude. I meant to visit him soon Covid relaxation allowed. It was not to be. Good and Gentleman and gentle soul. Family should be proud of him and I am sure his great impression on us will comfort us in this difficult time in a little way. I pray Neil good soul rest is eternal peace. We are missing you Neil.

    1. Hi Ganesh
      Thank you for the condolences and more importantly the glowing comments sbout my wonderful husband. He certainly was a unique person, a rare gem. He will be sorely missed by us all all.

  6. Dear Ruth & Family, Elizabeth, Bibiana, Clothilda & Theresa,

    Thinking of you, and wishing all of you hope in the midst of sorrow and comfort in the midst of pain.

    When you speak of Nari, speak not with tears, for thoughts of him should not be sad. Let memories of the times you shared give you comfort, for his life was rich because of you.

    Such a strong man will never truly be gone, for he has left a loving presence in our hearts.

    1. Dear Christabelle, Vivian & Chrys-Ellen.
      We grieve for losing our pillar of strength. He tended to us all and the void created now will be hard to fill. It feels like we’re sailing in a sinking ship. However, I am confident he will steady the ship of life for us.
      We will certainly cherish wonderful memories that are indelibly etched in our memories. We are blessed to have him in our lives. His presence will always be acutely felt by us.

  7. Dear Ruth, My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Condolences to Elizabeth, Bibiana, Clothilda and Theresa. Beautiful Service and Eulogy – Eternal Rest grant unto ‘Neil’ O Lord – May he Rest in Peace. Thoughts and Prayers with all of you.

    1. Dear Glenda, Thanks for your kind message of sympathy. I am so happy that the kids did him proud with their eulogies. He will be sorely missed by me, the kids and my sisters, as he was always eager to help.

  8. Dear Kirpalani Family,

    You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    With love always,
    Floody, Tam, Jake & Ella

    1. Floody (I remember you from school days), Tam, Jake & Ella,

      Thanks for your condolences.

      Ruth & Family

  9. Dear Ruth Our deepest sympathy to you Alistair and Charlene. May God Grant Neil Eternal Rest. I have fond memories of Neil when I visited Melbourne and often talk about the same with my family and friends. My condolences to Bibiana, Theresa and Elizabeth

    1. Dear Eleanor,
      Neil was always eager to ensure that all visitors especially those from overseas, had a wonderful time and he would go out of his way for this. Thanks for your condolences.

  10. Dearest Ruth and family. Such a moving service for your beloved husband and Dad. I was privileged to have known Neil and honoured to have been your bridesmaid/maid of honor at your wedding. Nari/Neil to me was an absolute saint even at first meeting him. Our friendship Ruth goes way back to our high school days. Even if our keeping in touch has wavered we can always pick up where we left off you and Neil always had a special place in my heart. I am deeply saddened by Neil’s passing and pray that God bless you to continue with your strong faith. The undying love you and Neil had for each other will keep him close to you forever. Our heartfelt condolences once again and may Neil’s dear soul rest in peace. All my love. Corrine

    1. Dearest Corrine,

      We certainly have known each other decades. I am deeply honoured and touched by the expression of sentiments about Neil.

      I feel blessed to have married him and which woman doesn’t feel proud to be told by someone that her husband worships the ground on which she treads? We’ve had our hardships like any married couple but the magical moments far out weigh those.

      He was a devoted family man who did the best for his family.

      I hope we do keep in touch.

      I’m sure Neil is enjoying the company of Angels and Saints in his Heavenly abode and he is smiling down on us.

      Love
      Ruth

    2. Dearest Corrine,

      Thsnk you for your condolences and lovely sentiments.

      Neil always felt indebted to you for your kindness to me when I migrated and he would have been there in your time of adversity. Yes we do go a long way in our relationship with each other and I do value your friendship.

      I appreciate your kind words about Neil and I do feel blessed to have married him. He was the wind beneath my wings and had a calming influence in my life. We did have our peaks and troughs in our life, but our wonderful memories certainly surpass everything. It is very rare that a woman gets told by someone that her husband worships the ground she treads.

      I feel humbled that he was a wonderful family man but had the time for anyone in need.

      Love and God bless

      Ruth

    My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

    May his soul Rest In Peace & free from all his pain.

    Warm regards

  21. my deepest and sincere condolences,
    my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad and very difficult time.
    I had the great privilege of knowing Neil for a short time though the Wednesday U3A line dancing class.
    during that short time, Neil bought much joy and happiness to each class that I participated in with him.
    may God bless you all during this difficult time.
    Neil will be greatly missed at the classes and within your family
    May Neil rest in peace with our loving Lord

    1. Daniele. Neil loved the line dancing classes. I think the ladies had a soft spot for him as he smilingly washed the crockery. I was the envy of some of the ladies. Unfortunately, he couldn’t come to line dancing because the nerve endings in his feet were damaged.
      Neil certainly had an impact with many and we are all going to miss him. I will sorely miss my soul mate.
      I do take comfort that Neil us no longer suffering.

    2. Hello everyone.
      I do sincerely apologise to all who have not received individual responses from me.
      It has driven me nuts, as I made several attempts to reply but they have gone astray into the ether.
      I sincerely thank each and everyone of you for your kind messages after Neil’s demise.
      It is the wonderful impact he had on all and I am deeply honoured and heartened by all your messages. These will certainly lessen the enormity of pain I sustain at losing my soul mate.
      We will endeavour to carry on his beautiful legacy by emulating him.

  22. My deepest condolences. Neil was a wonderful person that left a great impression on all those who met him. Rest In Peace Neil❤️
    Much love from the Rooney’s

    1. Thank you so very much Pearl and Paul. Neil certainly left a lasting impression on all who made contact with him.
      He has earned his rest
      Ruth & Family

  23. Dear Ruth, Evelyn sent me the link to follow the Service, which I very much appreciated, to honour the wonderful, kind man I came to know during our Line Dancing classes. I came to know & experienced some of the good qualities expressed about him during this time. Remember fondly, how he never forgot to see that the jugs were on in time for Recess at 11am & how he, always, helped with the washing /drying of mugs used & helped Lorraine, unfailingly, with loading the equipment into her car etc. Always the gentleman, kind, considerate & respectful of others. MAY HE REST IN PEACE. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES TO YOU & YOUR FAMILY. GOD BLESS YOU & GIVE YOU STRENGTH AT THIS TIME.

    1. Our deepest sympathy to you Ruth and family. We will miss Neil’s big smile and his sense of humour. May he rest in peace in God’s arms.
      From Anna Mary and Tony Minenna.

    2. Dear Anna, Mary & Tony.
      Thank you for your condolence message. We will all miss his cheery smile but take comfort that he’s resting peacefully in the Lord’s wonderful embrace.

    3. Dearest Ruth and Family,

      Deepest sympathies and prayers on your loss.
      RI.P Neil.

    4. Thanks for your message Romaine. You describe Neil exactly the way he was always, even at his work. He enjoyed doing stuff for others. He was always compassionate, kind and a thorough gentleman.

      It will be hard for me but I have such amazing memories to cling to.

    5. Dear Romaine,
      Neil loved line dancing but unfortunately the nerve endings in his feel were damaged due to chemo and he couldn’t dance. He liked doing the washing up and helping others was just ingrained in him.
      Thank you for your message of sympathy and we are blessed to have had him in our lives.
      Ruth

  26. I never really worked with Neil but I got to know him at the breakfasts the ATO prepared for the needy in Dandenong. Neil was always a willing volunteer and would help with whatever needed to be done. The last time I saw him was having a coffee in the cafe behind the office. He had driven there because he was unable to walk the short distance and despite the pain he was in, he still had a smile on his face. It’s that smile and positive attitude that I’ll always remember. Sincere condolences to Ruth and the rest of the family.

  27. Dear Ruth, Charlene, Allister and Family,

  30. Dear Charlene, Ali, Ruth and Family – your Dad/Neil was an absolute top guy!
