  6. Philip: I will keep you in my heart forever. Loved your fine intellect. Loved hearing about your many escapades especially rafting down the Franklin River: also your adventure on the Tall Ship “Soren Larsen” down the west coast of Tasmania to Hobart. Whilst ship anchored in Port Davey harbour you swam underneath it. Wow. Also your speed boat trip across to Lady Julia Percy Island from Yambuk. I will never forget the fun times me and Reilly had with you. Sue my deep thanks to you for looking after my brother so well. Farewell Philip from Joey and Reilly
