A Message from Barb Callan

It is hard for me to find the right words to express myself,  but inadequate as this seems, l would like to thank you all for your messages of condolence.  Ian’s funeral was a great event that we felt was a fitting testament to the man he was and am so thankful that we were able to share it with so many of you.
I would also like to thank all those who shared Ian’s journey last year. Your support during the year gave both of us a huge lift every time you made contact, either in person or by phone or email, and was very much appreciated.
Now it’s all over l still keep expecting him to walk in the door. I am so thankful that l have moved to our apartment and that Ian was able to live here for his final few weeks, we both love it.
So please don’t lose touch – Ian was,  as you all know, a great one for staying in touch, and l intend to keep that going.
My sincere thanks to the Class of ‘72
With love, till we meet again
Barb (and Callo) xxxx

  1. Hi Barb

    Greetings from Da Lat in the Central Highlands of Vietnam where I remain on lockout from Oz (no virus here) for a year, and probably another year to come. (If you have to suffer a lockout, Vietnam is definitely the place to be.)

    Via the excellent video link, I watched the fitting tribute of Callo’s last posting. It was a ceremony worthy of him. Blackie spoke well and your two fine young sons truly are a testament to both you as parents.

    I know my brother Don, who worked with Callo for 15 years in the childcare industry, was very sad at his passing. His comment was that ‘Callo was such a good family man’. This said it all in my opinion.

    I wish you and your family all the best for the future.

    ‘Mates Forever’.

    Kind regards.

    Chris Jones
