  1. It was with great sadness, learning of “Wills” passing last week.

    I was lucky enough to have Will, Gloria, Chris and extended family as neighbours for many years in Bombo.

    I have many memories of Will and Gloria and our near daily banter over the fence. Will always loved chatting about the chores he had to do, or never got around to do 😀. He loved talking about what he was growing in his vegetable patch and how he, Chris and I should fix up the broken fence palings … we did eventually, over time, but I think we just liked talking about it more than anything.
    One memory of “ Will, “ will always stick in my mind with much fondness. It was one of the first of many encounters of
    “ fence chit chat “…..
    When I first moved into Bombo and the first time “Will “put his head over the fence to say hello and to graciously give me some home grown beens, out of nowhere , he was greeted with a head bigger than his own and paws bigger than each Paling they we’re gripped to – two eyes from either side of the fence staring at each other in awe or fear ? it was my Great Dane “Abbey” wanting to say hello.
    Abbey, gave “Will”’10 more grey hairs that day and a reason to go inside and have a stiff drink. Since that particular greeting, “Will “ always left the beans in a white plastic bag – hanging on my side of the fence 😀…. Abbey, I’m sure, was always hoping it was a bone.

    Will was kind soul and I know he will be greatly missed.

    To Wills family………..
    I know how much you will miss him , but I know you can take comfort and strength from the wonderful family you are. I am thinking of you all, wish I was there, I’m sending lots of love as you celebrate Will’s remarkable 91 years and the beautiful memories you shared and will always hold onto.

    In the words of William Wordsworth …..
    “ Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower, we will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind”.

  2. Goodbye to our gentle brother-in-law Will:

    Although we live in South Australia we had many holidays in NSW when we and our children spent time with Will, Gloria and William, Linda and Chris. The memories we have of those laughs and good times we had together will be with us always. Their home on the beautiful coast of Bombo was always open to us as our home was to them and it was as if no time had passed between visits.

    Will was a beautiful man, always so relaxed and friendly. When he met my Mother and Father, Ron & Fay Hammill, he welcomed them as part of the family and he and Dad shared a love of gardening, but only vegetables, never flowers which were a waste of water. He shared his famous bean seeds with Dad and Dad grew them faithfully every year.

    We will miss Will as we miss Gloria, but they will both be in our heart and thoughts forever.

    Sandy and Dave Murray & Kym, Sharon & Dave, Greg & Rebecca and their families
