So many lovely memories growing up and spending time with our nz family. When I think of Tony I always end up smiling. I think of him smiling often and having a good chuckle. My most favourite memory growing up was visiting you all on the dairy farm. Thinking of you all and lots of love
Dear Jill and Family, we are so very sorry to hear about Tony's passing. He had a wonderful sense of humour and you were clearly absolutely devoted to each other. Thinking of you and remembering you all in our prayers.

Dad, seems you were never happier than the day you gave your daughter away. This photo was taken just after you told my new husband that I was now his responsibility, and there was no returns accepted!
Our sympathy& love to you Jill& family. Appreciated Tony,s quality attention to detail and emergency help in farming days. Always the trade smile, with a joke. Will miss your visits to Wallacetown meetings. Will have a special tribute to Tony in mid Dec. Dave and Frances Stewart.
