Dear Denise, Phillip, Katie and families.
I just heard the very sad news of Stan's passing.....
What a shock! He was a truely kind and good hearted man and Im so sorry his journey here with you has finished. He loved and cherished you all so much that there is no chance he will be anywhere but watching over you each day. Huge hugs to you all....Stan always seemed to have a friendly, warm smile on his face -a top bloke through and through Belinda and family.xxxx

Dear Denise and family, John and I were very saddened on hearing of Stan's passing. He was a wonderful man and I enjoyed our many talks about teaching and schools. He was certainly a well respected educator and kind and gentle man.
All our love

Dear Denise, Phillip and Katie, So sorry to hear of Stans passing. Stan was a kind, intelligent man who always took the time to see how you were going and offer words of encouragement. This is no small thing, and something greatly appreciated when I was growing up. I know Stan will be missed by so many people. Stan did not leave the world untouched by his energy and love of learning. My condolences to Denise, Phillip and Katie, his family and many friends.

on behalf of my mother Mrs Dawn Bleakley (nee Gozzard) we send heartfelt condolences to all of Stan's family. Prayers and thoughts at this sad time Leearna Tunnemann

Dear Denise and Family

So sorry to hear of Mr Melville's passing. I remember him a teacher and great guitar/singer at Ainslie school. He was a lovely gentleman to talk to at my parents (Poppy and Nick) bistro at Mitchell when you worked there many years ago. My condolences to you and your family. Tina Tsakiris xx

Mr Melville was my school principal at Lyneham Primary when I was there from 1984 - 86, and my Year 6 maths teacher in 86. I have very fond memories of my time at Lyneham and in Mr Melville's class. He was an excellent teacher, always kind. My condolences to his family, I remember Katie from school. I am very sorry for your loss.

Dear Denise
We are so sorry to hear of your loss and trust that the love and support of family and friends will get you through this difficult time. Stan was loved and respected by all relatives and friends and he will be greatly missed.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, we would walk right up to Heaven and bring him home again.
With deepest sympathy and heartfelt...
