A good man was farewelled today.
He was born in 1923, grew up on a farm through the Depression and made pocket money by collecting birds eggs and catching rabbits with his pet ferret.
He was a farmer, horseman and a stockman.
He was a Christian who lived his faith in his values, his words and deeds.
He was an active volunteer in his community. His service included decades on the A&P committee and retired from a regular helper with Riding for the Disabled only when he could no longer stand.
He was a loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
He was a truly good man and I am grateful for him and other like him who leave the world a better place.
