I was taking my daughter to the Royal Melbourne Show during the September holidays in 2011 when I received the  call that my father (Paul Kitchen) was in casualty at St Vincent’s, with a suspected brain tumour.  Resulting surgery and other treatment provided us with 12 precious weeks with him before he passed away on the 27th December.

Here is my tribute to him which was recorded at his funeral at the One Community Church in Blackburn on 3rd January, 2012.
