Thinking of some wonderful memories we all had together, the BBQs, the kids, the fishing, and the somewhat exaggerated fishing stories.
Great memories and some sad times too.
A sad,sad loss.

On Wednesday we celebrated the life of Eric Mahoney. It was great to catch up to work mates from years gone by.
I was speaking to Eric’s father who said it made him very happy to see many if Eric’s work mates at the funeral and wake. I cannot write in words the emotion in his words.

Whilst at the wake we were discussing the celebrants words, ” we have now, we do not know what lays ahead, miso take the time to catch up with family and friends.”

With that in mind Lee Howell, Donna Sedgmen, David Little, Garry Law, Manny Rivera, Steve Mann and myself discussed organising a get together.

The location we came up with is the Wollongong surf leisure resort. This is a resort with cabins, caravans and camping options. Across the road is the Towradgi beach hotel which has a good bistro/restaurant.

The plan is to book in at the resort for Saturday 26th May, catch up in the afternoon and cross the road to the hotel for dinner.

The accommodation has various options, sharing will cost $50 for the night.

There is plenty of time to organise this day, not compulsory to stay over and I’m sure if the Occasion arises there will be some where to put your head down if you do stay.

Hope to see as many old friends as possible.

Stay well and take care ????
