  4. Thinking of you Jen and your lovely family on the loss of Neil. So sorry I can’t be with you today to Celebrate Neil’s long and wonderful life.

    As I said recently, memories of him happy among friends while singing and playing cards sure make me smile. I hope there is comfort in that.

  5. To Kathie, Marion, Allan, Jenny and families.

    Uncle Neil was the much loved brother to Ash (dec), brother in law to Rosemary and Uncle to Mark, Gary, Fiona and David McGillivray.

    We have so many fond memories of the many occasions we spent with Neil at the farm in Willatook, his childhood home. He will always be remembered as a great friend and brother to Ash and Rose. As an Uncle, we were fortunate enough to spend countless hours doing such things as fixing tractors, raking and baling hay and our all time favourite, night time eeling at the creek.

    We have so many cherished memories of this wonderfully wise man as he was always present in our lives.

    Uncle Neil will continue hold a special place in our hearts and remembered forever.

    Sympathy to all!

    Rosemary, Mark, Gary, Fiona, David McGillivray and families.

  6. We extend our deepest condolences to you and your family on the passing of our beloved Uncle Neil. He was not only a cherished uncle but also a guiding light and a beloved brother to our late mother, providing unwavering support during difficult times. His presence, imbued with the ambiance of the countryside, brought comfort and stability into our lives when we needed it most. We will forever cherish the memories of his life, the warmth of his friendship, and the wisdom of his guidance. The music of his guitar will resonate in our hearts, forever reminding us of the country atmosphere he so often brought to life.

    Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to Kathie, Marion, Jennifer, Alan, and their respective families and friends. May you find solace in the cherished memories of Uncle Neil and in the love and support of those who hold him dear. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered.
