Uncle bill, you were there when I was growing up and you always had a smile on your face, we lost touch once you and aunty moved to Invercargill and got back in touch when Dad died. I will miss you and forever love you your niece Carla Lawrence

You loved me for who I was and accepted me for who I was striving to become.
Dad you were strong for a reason, your strength gives me a sense of protection.
Now that you are in heaven dad, I know you will continue to protect me.
Thanks for being my DAD .
I will always love and miss you until we meet again.
