  11. Greatly saddened to hear about Noel’s passing. My thoughts to the whole family. Fond memories of your arrival in Coomie many years ago, and, living close enough to be ‘neighbours. Some idle chats along the boundary road between the blocks whilst driving through, or ‘working in our paddocks’. Farewell Noel.
