  1. It’s so hard to write in words the sadness we feel at losing you Bushy-Steve, you will be forever in our hearts and in our thoughts. So many wonderful memories shared that will never be forgotten.
    Thank you for the laughs & the cuddles.
    Love you Steve Lxxx

  2. What a beautiful service . . . I am so very grateful that I could watch this virtually/on-line . . . & even though I was unable to do so until a later time, I felt like I was truly there . . . until I realised I couldn’t go & hug my brother Ron who was standing so lonely initially at the end 🙁 . . . But it didn’t take long for him to get a hug too 🙂 . . .

    Dear, dear Bev . . . what a wonderful life you & Steve had together . . . so very special . . . Steve was truly one of a kind & I loved hearing what Forrest & Ron had to share about him . . . & the ‘spot-on’ perfect poems from Forrest, Sally & Em . . . I also really loved the chosen music & the wonderful selection of photos – sooo many good ones . . .
    Even though I couldn’t hug you all, it really was good to be able to see you, Sally & Em, Joan, Liz & Forrest (my goodness, he looks so much like his brother!)

    I send you many hugs & love ❤️ to help you live through & hopefully mend some of this heartbreak loss . . . & I wish you & the girls as much happiness as you’re able to find in the cracks with your gorgeous families around you . . .
    I also send a big hug to Joan (you really are looking so well & I hope you are feeling that way too despite this heartache ) & to Liz & to Forrest – I wish I could’ve given you a big hug too . . .

    I shall be making a donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation in honour of Steve & have lit a candle which now sits with my other dearly departed loved ones on the mantel shelf over a cosy wood fire . . . But now I shall fix myself a drink & toast Steve toodle-pip! & I’ll think of him when I do a crossword.

  3. Bev, Sally & Emily wish we could have been with on this very sad day, but know we are all with in spirit. Look after each other always. Love from Uncle Jim Nicker, Gwenda, George & family. xxx

  4. My sincere condolences to you beautiful family, I know you cherished them with great pride. Bushy was a great work make, always with a smile, happy and easy going. Getting in at the lunch truck at breakfast time was alway priority of the day. Mulling over the hardest decision of the day and always returning to the daily favorites. R.I.P Bushy you will always be remembered as great work mate..
