                      Deepest sympathy to Leslie, Ross, Dean, Linda and families. Sorry we can’t attend. We always loved catching up with Dixie at the races in latter years and were most fortunate to live in Pingrup when Dixie was involved in many district activities there including football and the Lions Club. He always had a story to share or a poem to tell.
