  1. Deepest Condolences to Keith and Family on the passing of Dossie.

    We had some great times getting to know each other over our time spent at Town Club Warrnambool.

    I loved you beautiful smile, your cheekiness and the way you always made me laugh with your random and interesting words lol.

    My favourite memories was my 30th Birthday when you showed the young ones up on the dance floor.

    Whenever I was in Adlis you would hit me with a banana or cucumber to get my attention if I didn’t see you then hide and as I looked to see who it was you would appear laughing and then you would have this big smile on your face and a big hug for me.

    RIP my dear friend we will meet again in Heaven one day until that day comes I will never forget you and the beautiful memories.

    Heaven gained another Angel the day God came and took you home.

    Love Rebecca Pike xox
