IN MEMORY OF A LOVING AND SPECIAL BROTHER. Today is full of memories of a brother laid to rest and every single one of them is filed with happiness. For he was someone special, always such joy to know. There was so much pain when it was time to let go. That's why this special message is sent to Heaven to Jesus and the angels to take care of him and to give him all our love. Your loving brother Robert

My uncle Mark was more like a big brother instead of an Uncle, I will miss him greatly. He was an amazing guy and a role model in my life. My heart goes out to Ashley and family who were with him in last hours. JT and Luke I can’t imagine what’s it must be like to witnesses the tragedy, you all did the best you could have done. My Nan’s heart is broken and there is nothing I can do to make it better. The world has a void which can only be filled with the memories and love we have for Mark. All our love Michael, Tori and Katelyn xxx
