  1. My brother gone to soon
    I’ll never forget the escapades of our youth
    roaming around Darlinghurst me getting you into trouble as always.Sleep peacefully l will keep you in my heart until we meet again.
    Ann(Bad Sister)

  2. I will never forget the time Rook went camping with Ellen. After we had had dinner and a few drinks, Rook said he would be back joining us around the fire, after he had put Ellen (peanut) to bed. A little while later Ellen emerged from the tent, and very proudly announced that Daddy was asleep.

  3. Dearest brother 6 month’s have passed today since you left us
    Love you little brother
