Emma, Ava, Jack, Stephen, Kevin and Jaqui, the Spreekmeester family and Judy, I’m so sorry for your loss. On occasion I would hear Mr Spreekmeester on the phone saying “hello sweetie” when he called Emma and could tell how deeply he loved you. And I’ve seen both the twinkle in his eye and smile so many have mentioned and it’s plain to see the source was the love, joy and pride he felt for his family and loved ones.
