BONNEY, Rhys Campbell
To my wonderful husband. You were an incredible dad to Loodle and Bubba. I treasure our time together. We embraced each day and experienced life to the full together. You brought out the best in me - you're my friend and soulmate. I'll miss your humour, love and wisdom. No one will understand me, or my jokes, quite the same. You'll be with us forever.

BONNEY, Rhys Campbell
Dearly loved younger son of Beryl Naismith & the late Ed Bonney, dearly loved brother, brother-in-law & uncle of Iain, Jo, Lily & Gabe Cook-Bonney, & respected friend of Robert Naismith. A life lived to the full. Deeply mourned.

Rhys, you were as great a friend as anyone could ever have. We'll miss you forever. Now who's going to explain Heather's jokes to us? All the love in the world - Clare & Jabez.
