    “Jimmy Barker”… after many many years I only saw you a few months ago at my Dads funeral. It meant the world to us you were there. You were one of his great mates and he loved sharing a beer with you. So grateful we got to see you and yet so sad we didn’t know it would be our last good bye. Thanks for the memories growing up, you were always loved and respected in our family. Rest easy Jimmy. May the big man upstairs have a cold one waiting for you and my beautiful Dad. Cheers 🍻
