  1. You were my only Junior Cricket Coach, and my first A Grade Premiership Captain / Coach.

    You were always my mentor in life.

    But most importantly you were my Dad in your own unique way.
    We watched your rapid decline to the end, but lifetime memories are ours forever.
    Win the toss and commence your next innings in peace now Dad.

    – Pete and Gillian
