  3. “The land is no longer in view,
    The clouds have begun to frown,
    But with a stout vessel and crew,
    We’ll say, Let the storm come down,
    And the songs of our hearts shall be,
    While the winds and the waters rave,
    A home on the rolling sea,
    A life on the ocean wave. ”
    Sorry for your loss, I hope you can take comfort in your memories.

  5. Dear Una and family
    Sending much love. Vinnie’s passing is the end of a very special era. I’m sure my Dad will be enjoying a good yarn or ten about the times the two of them shared as fishermen and young lads around St Leonard’s. Our thoughts are with you

    Robyn and Danny.

  6. Fond memories of you and dad walking along the St.Leonards pier after a hard day’s fishing but still with the ginning laughing faces.
    I’ll always remember those grins..
    Much love…Kerry
