  14. To Jenny, Alan & Echo, and Kerry,
    Sincere condolences on your loss. Harvey had a great innings but it is always a shock when it happens.

    Lots of memories have come flooding back. When I was a wee lad I wanted to be Uncle Harvey! How great it was to have an Uncle who was a train driver, especially so as the railway line from Melbourne to Leongatha and beyond was straight across the road from our house and Uncle Harv would blow the train whistle and wave every time he went past.
    Also fond memories of many Easters spent at Waratah Bay where Uncle Harv would spend most days surf fishing. I don’t remember him ever catching very much but he patiently stuck to the task and was happy to let us kids have a go if we wanted.

    Sorry that your cousins from “Fortress Queensland” can’t be there to help you celebrate Harvey’s life but we will be there in spirit.

    Rest in peace Uncle Harvey.
