  8. Dear Vicki and family,

    Thank you and other family members for sharing so many joyful stories of Peter’s life today.
    I have fond memories of Peter, Connie, Val and Alan at car rallies and jazz jam parties with Mum and Dad (Jan and Ken McKie) in the late 60s and early 70s, when I was growing up. Peter and Dad together with Connie and Jan had a great friendship and I always enjoyed Peter’s friendly nature too. I appreciated catching up with him at my Dad’s funeral in 2002 and my Mum’s funeral in 2014. I have photos of Peter playing alto sax in a band with my Dad on drums in the early 60’s, but I always regretted that I hadn’t heard him play, until today, seeing the video of Peter playing clarinet so beautifully! May he Rest In Peace. Gary McKie

  9. Dear Vicki and family,
    what a beautiful service of commemoration you created for your dear Dad.
    During the first 40 years of our friendship I never met your Dad, but certainly heard a lot about him and your many trip to Lakes Entrance to be with him.
    During the last couple of years I loved meeting him at your home when my Dad and I visited from Adelaide. It was so sweet seeing our old Papas sitting on the couch together chatting and getting on like they’d always known each other. Two real gentlemen, reminiscent of a bygone era in which they grew up, loving fathers, good providers, both kind and considerate of others.
    I know it was a precious time for you having your Dad live with you and an honour and you will always treasure not only the good memories, but the knowledge that you and Tom did a great thing in having him join your household ..
    These final years provide so many precious opportunities to come to know our dear ones in ways we may not have in the earlier busy years…so glad you made the most of that and may you continue to be enriched and blessed by these memories.
    Well done all, hope your raising a glass or two to Pete , then can have a big rest…you’ve certainly earned it.
    May Pete rest in peace. God bless you all

  10. Dear Vicki and Family,

    The Service was very moving and a fine tribute to a “Life Well Lived”.

    When we met your dad, we instantly felt his warmth and kindness and were engaged by his beautiful smile. He was a lovely man.

    We feel your sadness and loss but please know that we are here for you should you need anything.

  13. Dear Vicki, Sonya and families. It was a beautiful service and great to hear about Peter’s happy life. I have fond memories of those days at the beach, jam sessions and bbqs growing up.

    Loved seeing all the photos, and of course, seeing my Mum and Dad looking young and happy. The cars and the fashion and the music were great to see also.

    Your Dad had a long and happy life and your have lovely memories.

    Love Gayle (Mckie)

    I was very moved to attend the goodbye funeral for your Dad Pete, to hear of his long life, interests and to see the story in pictures.

  21. Dear Vicki and family,

    Branko and I were very sad to hear of your Dad’s passing.

    Although I only spoke with him a couple of times, I will remember his cheeky smile and kind, gentle manner.

    Take heart in knowing he went “quietly into the night”.

    Please let me know if I can do anything to support you at this time.

    Lots of love your way from us,
