  9. Uncle Ken what a great man, loved a good time with his big smile and I will miss our little chats on my Mildura trips. The best tour guide we ever had and a good bloke. So glad we got mum up for that last party with her brother in 2019. Condolences to the rest of the family he is resting peacefully now. Cheers Uncle.
