BUCKINGHAM – Graham (Codge)

Dad, thank you for all the love and guidance you have given me throughout my life. You taught me so many life skills and to always be practical.

Thanks also for treating Mick like a son but most of all thank you so much for the love you gave our kids. You were so proud of them and happily shared in so much of their lives.

The only consolation we have is knowing you’re back with Mum and Sue. Give them a hug from us.

All our love today and forever,
