Peace Prayer of St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are
born to eternal life.

Celebrating a Great Man

Dearly loved husband of the late Patricia Margaret. Much loved father and father-in-law of Paul and Ann, Mark and Monica, Chris and Jenny, Tim and Alicia. Loved brother and brother-in-law of Margaret and Bill, John and Gillian. Adored poppy of Rob, Jessica, Gemma, Sophie, Matt, Dave, Jirra and Lani. 

Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I’ll miss you,
Until we meet again!

We thank you for your kindness and expressions of sympathy at a time when it is needed and deeply appreciated.

He filled our hearts with love,
Laughter and joy


Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories
