    Dear Wally
    I’m sad to hear of your passing.
    What memories I have of us all being together at Tocumwal, Barham and at your home many a time.
    Billy telling jokes and you laughing at them so much you could hardly catch your breath.
    We always had a good time together with you and Sue.
    I can imagine you up there now with Billy and Jack, what a team.
    My sincere condolences to you Sue and your Family.
    Love, Judy Young.

    Sending all my love to Aunty Sue, the boys and their families.
    Nick and I were so lucky to have such amazing memories out at the farm when we were little.
    We’ve grown up with Aunty Sue and Uncle Wal, a part of our extended family.
    I’ll miss Uncle Wal’s hugs, his cheekiness and his smile.
    Rest Peacefully Uncle Wal!
    Run a muck up there with Papa!
