Very sad Steve, I hope your wife, you and the family are coping OK. He sounded like a hard but great guy.

Thanks Fellas.
I've written the eulogy and will deliver it also, as well as helping carry the coffin into the chapel.

Well we sent him off in fine style yesterday.
About 5 WA based ex 5RAR Vietnam Vets turned up, all with a lotta medals on their jackets. :omg: :omg:
Made my poor single Service Medal look pretty sick, but hey, that's ok too!
My wife and each of my 3 kids delivered some fine words, along with 2 of his other kids.
His 11yo granddaughter then played Cello for the final curtain call.
Great send off, and I was pretty impressed with the number of people outside of the family who turned up.
:hello2: :hello2: :hello2:
