  15. Dear Liz, Brendan & Lisa,
    I am very sorry to hear about Keith’s passing. I have such fond memories of Keith back many years ago on the campdrafting circuit. My dad (Smiley Coleman) and Keith were great mates, always having a yarn and laugh every time they would see each other at many of the Monaro campdrafts. I was lucky enough to ride Keith’s lovely gelding Beau. He was one of my favourites! Every time I asked Keith could I ride him he did not hesitate to loan him to me for the Junior and Juvenile drafts. I always remember Keith along side the camp watching us both compete. He was such a kind and generous person and was always up for the yarn. I will remember him with a big smile and a very generous heart. Sending lots of love to all the family at such a sad time.
    Kind regards, Jenn Corbett(nee Coleman)

  16. We are thinking of you on this difficult day Lisa and family. All our love and prayers. Scott and Natalya

May you feel the comfort and support of those who love you. ๐Ÿ’ž My thoughts and prayers are with you Lisa, your Mum and your brother plus extended families. ๐Ÿ™. Love Lyndall ๐Ÿ’‹

  18. Dear Liz, Lisa, Brendan and Blake.
    Thinking of you all in this challenging time. My deep condolences. Strange to think that just a little over a month ago Keith showed me around the property and we had some really good talks and laughs – he was a character and fun to be around. Brave and proud at the same time. Also thinking about all the way back in ยด82 where Peter and I came out to visit – it was an experience of a lifetime for two teenagers. Keith introduced us to the country life with all its aspects. And then to now suddenly realize he is no longer here. Strange. Keith my dear uncle will surely be missed in many ways.. Warm hugs from me Michael, Denmark

  19. To Liz & Family
    Sorry we were unable to attend Keith’s farewell & our thoughts have been with you all with the sad loss of Keith who was taken far too soon. We have fond memories of Keith & his family as we grew up back in the Candelo days.
    Marj & Doug Bower & family
