I will always treasure the times the family vacationed with Uncle Kevin and Aunty Noela at Terrigal and Exeter. They really knew how to play cards and bring laughter and happiness to all.
March 26, 2018
I feel truly blessed to have had a childhood of rich memories that Kevin, along with Noela helped to create and send condolences to their family members. I truly believe they have gone on to the Heavenly realm to their reward for their lives of kindness and faithfulness.

I grew up from aged two living next door to Kevin and Noela.
They were always very kind to us and other neighbourhood children of large baby boomer families.
Hoisting ourselves to the top of the paling fence with eager eyes we children impatiently awaitned the ripening of the passionfruit on the centre piece "wall" covered in the burgeoning vine in Kevin and Noela's backyard.
At the appropriate time Kevin would call us over, take his secetors, cut off the mouth-watering sweet specimens and laden us with the juicy purple fruits as they came to full ripening. His ability to grow and harvest such lavish crops of top quality produce from the unwelcoming clay earth of Sydney's west, attested to his country background.

Noela's kitchen where I whiled away many an hour was a welcome retreat from the rambunctious activities of my three brothers at home and she always had time for my childish prattle. Her culinary skills led Noela to develop her hobby of cake decorating to a professional level. On my ninth birthday I became the honoured recipient of one of her elaborate creations: a gorgeous doll whose cake dress was stunningly iced with delicate pastel rosettes and fine icing lacework of intricate beauty.
Feeling so honoured by receiving this wonderful gift, I took some to our convent primary school to share with the teacher and my classmates. Sister asked whether my neighbour who decorated the cake was Catholic. Before long at regular intervals with a handwritten request letters for Noela, I brought back simple boiled fruitcakes from the Convent just before each of the hardworking nuns' birthdays ! For years Noela would dutifully return cake after cake each iced in a most beautiful decorative manner, a rare and very welcomed treat for the many sisters to whom she gifted them.

Then there were those warm and wonderful evenings where we learned the art of neighbourly behaviour. We children lay snugly in our beds and listened to Mr and Mrs Lawler and our parents Arthur and Norma, enjoying the conversation, sharing snacks and raising a glass with each other in our living room as they all saw the New Year in. We were assured on those nights that despite the troubles of the times our little part of the world was as it should be, where neighbours were there for each other and friendships blossomed.

Finally , when Kevin so many decades later, felt the time had come to part with number 62, it seemed befitting that the youngest child of the McCallum family, our sister, unborn at the time of the events above, should decide with her husband, to buy Kevin and Noela s home and had made it their family's home for some years.

The loving memory of Kevin and Noela, is knitted in my heart and though they are missed, I think of them reunited in the realm beyond, all earthly cares behind them. May the joys of Heaven be theirs .

Suzan Watson nee McCallum
