Here is a copy of the speech I made at the launch of my new book Rainbow Over Narre Warren.
My name is Elsie and I am John’s sister, older than him by five years and I wrote this book to honour him and the things he did.
I know that John would have loved to hang around on earth a bit longer. He had things he wanted to do, places he wanted to be, work that wasn’t complete, people he wanted to spend time with, meals he hadn’t eaten!
None of us wanted John to go to God just yet either. He was important in our lives and we enjoyed being in his company. John was a good bloke!
