  1. Dear Auntie Lola, Vivian, Geoffrey and Families,
    It was wonderful to be able to see Lex’s funeral from afar. Not sure if this was possible pre covid perhaps it’s one thing good that
    has come of it. A lovely tribute Vivian. He would have enjoyed it. With much love Karen and Patrick. (He always asked me how Patrick was doing that was nice). He will be missed. Sorry I could not have seen him one last time.

    Thankfully we were able to join you at the farewell via the webcast and enjoy the fitting tribute to such a wonderful bloke. The Barrabool Hills have seen a lot of changes over the years and the impact of Uncle Lex not looking over them will be felt by many. Rest In Peace now Uncle in the knowledge that you will never be forgotten.
