  2. Dear Tony, Leanne and family,
    I’m so sad and sorry that Sheila has left us.
    And I’m very sorry not to be able to be there for the funeral.
    Paul let me know and I’m happy he can be there to represent Tom and myself.
    I had many beautiful moments with Sheila. One was a visit to Melbourne When I was about 15 and Sheila and I spent the day in town together. It was an adventure. We went to the Inn Shop which was the ultimate in groovy and Sheila surprised me by buying for me a cheesecloth hippy top , bright pink I think, that I loved and wore all summer long.
    I also enjoyed coming to stay a couple of nights in Koroit when I was back from living in Paris for five years.
    I also learnt to drive in the paddock outside your kitchen window with all the family looking in from behind the kitchen window.
    Tom and I also had a great visit to Sheila’s home in Warrnambool, exchanging stories, eating chocolates, after the sad parting of Honora.
    Long live Sheila now reunited with her fabulous Mick,
    Sending much love,
    Lisa and Tom

  10. Thank you for being such a great part of my life, as your Grandchild I was extremely lucky, and very spoilt. I absolutely loved visiting Koroit and Warrnambool and had so many memorable times at the farm and your house. I will miss you dearly. ❤️
