  9. Karen Beecroft

    Mike, Wayne and families, as well as Irwin, Bill and Kit – I was so very sad to hear of Pat’s passing and have many fond memories of her while growing up. A well remembered mud battle in the creek at HariHari was obviously not a major thing in everyday life and just meant that more bodies than usual had to go through the bath. (Much more fun than any cell phone or game boy could ever have been). Rest in Peace Pat, and say Hi to Mum for me. Much love, Karen

    Thank you Pat for being such a kind supportive Wife, Mother and lover for the 35 years of our marriage.

    The 20 odd minutes alone with you this morning helped me say that
    goodbye. You have never left my heart and mind and I would not trade the years spent with you for anything in the world.
