A huge THANK YOU Whiwhi for all the help you have given our parents. Taxi driver, gardener, wheelie bin, mailman. The list goes on including helping us girls. Awesome neighbour for over 26 years. Our deepest sympathy to Noelene, Suzanne, Sharyn and Gillian and the rest of the family. Whiwhi was a devoted family man. He had so many stories. Will certainly miss him popping his head over the fence. Take care.
