For your granddaughter, the love of my life.
For your grit and determination, crucial in your escape from the jungle following your plane crash in WWII.
For being a good husband to Mammar, so that you could have a huge family together.
For your stellar career as the brains and technical skill behind a decade of Australian legislation introduced by both political parties- yes, your work on the Trade Practices Act and Family Law Act has, with a few bumps, held up and changed our society in myriad ways.
For being a warm and welcoming grandfather to me in the short space of time I knew you.
Your line continues, your great-granddaughter is nigh.
Rest in peace.
