    Hi Brenton uncle Pete here hi would like to say I I’m very sad for my brother’s passing though I cannot be there with you but I am in spirit with you and family I was just thinking of my brother good times we had an element Grove and in Katherine Kununurra Darwin and Gosnells I was so proud of my big brother. Because he was a hard worker an eagles supporter Swan Districts supporter Holden fan. All the things I like Haswell also he remind me of how father because the way he talked just like our Dad I remember the time in Allawah grove we were playing with fire crackers and Dad and Uncle Desmond put a big firecracker call big bomber in inside the Coke bottle lip the cracker Henry ran back well we thought we’re far back enough so win the cracker exploded glass went everywhere and your father add a cut list above his knee so which do silly things like that we went horse riding in the nearby paddock and we walk through the bushes play Allday and come home Nan and Pop happy for us foot to go we used to go to Guildford and that’s where Swan Districts what dist over the bridge! I remember going to see Swans district play against South Fremantle and also I remember going to Eagles and docker so give my love to Alison Trevor Thomas mum and all grandchildren speciality tray because he was closest Dad deepest sympathy to all my brother’s family uncle Pete

    Mr Golden himself!
    My Pop, Graham Thomas Nettle, from you I’ve learned some of the most reliable ways and avenues to get through life. How to be strong mentally and physically, while being a leader for everybody that surrounds you and of course, how to lead the famous Nettle family!

How you held the family like you did and the impact you’ve had in everyone’s life. I’ll see you again pop. No doubt we be sitting back working on one of the beasts again like how we always used to, then go show off how us two Golden’s are the best drivers hahaha
    I miss you Pop but I know you’ll never leave my side.
    Love you Pop and don’t tease too many of the family, wait till I turn up with ya hahah from Golden no.2, Reecey Poo Bimbalamb Boo xx

    Rest In Peace Uncle Graham🌟

    Sending my love to aunty Audrey and family so sorry to hear about this sad time god only takes the best.

    My father Ernie Brown/EB (Dec)

    Always told me about the good old days when he would spend spend time with he’s sister and brother Graham and Audrey, Dad would always talk about the old V8 cars that uncle graham owned, dad said he’s just another V8 lover like me.

    I remember the day me and dad leaving midland hospital to come home about one and a half years ago,
    The doctors said you have one more visitor before you go home? It was Aunty Audrey and Uncle graham who walked in, it brighten dads face up he smiled and cried and the same time I guess those where the special memories coming back.

    All I can say now rest easy uncle, I’ll reminder that smile forever ❤️❤️

    To my darling Dad
    I still can’t believe you’re gone.
    It’s hard to find the words to express how much you mean to me, and just how much I will miss you.
    I always was and always will be so proud that you were my Dad, so proud to be your daughter.
    You always made me feel safe, supported and loved. I felt strong because I knew that you always had my back no matter what.
    I loved your sense of humour and the fun and laughs we had together. You could always lighten things up even in dark times and there would not be many moments that we were together that we weren’t laughing or joking around.
    I love that I got to share you with my children and that they also got to feel your unconditional love and support. We will never stop missing you and I am so grateful that Tre, Keira and I will always have these memories.
    I know you are at peace now, and that you are no longer suffering.
    I know you are with family and I take comfort in that.
    But I wish we could have had you for just a little longer Dad.
    Love forever from your daughter Allison, grandson Tre and granddaughter Keira


  12. 01 May 2020

    To my dear Dad,
    Thank you for always being there for me, Mum, Trev, Ally, Tom and all of the family, through the good and the bad times, no matter what.
    Thank you for your sense of humour and for teaching me not to take life too seriously.
    Thank you for your caring heart and for showing your love for us in everything you did. You asked for so little, yet gave so much.
    Thank you for all the places you showed us on our road trips, and for our shared love of driving, which we enjoyed together until the very end.
    Thank you for giving me a voice and for letting me be me.
    Thank you for being you.
    Thank you for your strength, which you showed until the very end.
    There will never be another Graham Nettle, you are one of a kind Dad.
    I know your spirit will always travel with me and this is just goodbye for now.
    From your loving son,


  13. 01 May 2020

    My brother in law.
    Today is the day you are put to rest. It is with a sad heart we cannot be there to celebrate your life. I think of the years I have known you n Audrey. 1977 I came into your house on Manning Rd, being the girlfriend of your brother in in 1978 became a sister in law. You were and have always been a special person, with your welcoming smile, cheeky words, and words of wisdom. You and Audrey became close to us and when each child came along became the best uncle they could experience. You struggled with your health until your last breath having your wife with you. I know the day you died my daughter Lyla nettle who passed away 17th may 2019 would of being there with welcoming arms and a hugh smile as you are her favourite uncle.

    We will always remember and cherish the memories we shared over the years.

    Love from your sister in law

    Uncle Graham you were a true gentleman with a heart of gold and had the best sense of humor, always making us laugh. I will always remember you and Aunty Audrey’s Trips to Moora when we were growing up and later on in Perth, where you would visit us with your latest V8 car. You loved your V8’s.
    I will also remember the good times we had when I went to Kununurra and stayed with you and Aunty Audrey.

    Uncle Graham.
    I’ve been trying to think of what to write for a while, and honestly there aren’t words to describe what you’ve meant to me. I remember when our dad passed away you reassured us girls that you would always be there to support us, and you were. I knew that no matter what I could always rely on your loving support, and your humor if we were having a tough time, or needed help. I used to love visiting with you and Aunty Aud because we’d have a good laugh and yarn catching up. You are at rest now, and we’ll miss you more than you could ever know. You’ll always be remembered.

    Love to Aunty Aud, Trevor, Brendyn, Alison, Thomas, and all your grannies. Wish we could be by your side at this time but are always thinking of you.

    – Miyagi.

    To my dear uncle,

    To say I’m going to miss you in an understatement. You were always there for us, and looked after us like your own daughters. You had a great sense of humor and were always willing to help us when we needed it.

    To Aunty Aud, Ally, Trevor, Brendyn, and Tom and all the grannies I’m very sad for you and wish we could be with you in this sad time. Love to you all.

    My dear pop graham
    Although I’m not there to say goodbye I’m still able to say it now as much as I wish I could of told you how much I loved you I know that you know I do, it’s hard to lose someone with such a golden heart and have to say farewell but forever you’ll be in my heart along with pop phill and nana Joan, I found this poem that speaks so much to me so here it is;

    Our lives go on without you
    But nothing is the same
    We have to hide our heartache
    When someone speaks your name

    Sad are the hearts that love you
    Silent are the tears that fall
    Living here without you
    Is the hardest part of all

    You did so many things for us
    Your heart was kind and true
    And when we needed someone
    We could always count on you

    The special years will not return
    When we are all together
    But with the love in our hearts
    You walk with us forever

    I love you pop and I will miss you dearly, my condolences to the rest of the family and especially to nana Audrey

    Love from me, phill and Bradley we will all miss you so much

    May the wind be always at your back,

    My Dear Uncle,

    Words Can’t Explain How Much You Left Us All So Heart Broken, You Was The Best Uncle Anyone Could Ask For. I Well Always Cherish The Times When Me, My Sisters & Brother Would Come To You And Aunty House In Gosnells And Everytime We All Would Walk Thru the Doors You Would Always Give Us Big Hugs And Always Made Us Feel Welcome, Always Love Going There And Everytime We Would See U Anywhere Else It Was Always Do The Same. You Was The Best Kind Hearted Uncle There Was, Who Never Treated Anyone Different Always Showed Everyone Love. Tears Are Rolling Down My Face Writing This But I Know Your In A Better Place Flying High With Pop, Nan & All The Family Watching Over All The Mob.

    You May Be Gone But You Well Never Be Forgotten. Rest In Peace My Dear Uncle Until We Meet Again.

    It is with great sadness as we write this tribute to our brother Graham.
    Graham, you will always have a special place in our hearts, because of you, “just being you”, humorous, knowledgeable, respectful and caring.
    From the time you started working with Denise and “Old Boy” (Eric Conway), you became family and we would always get a laugh out of Old Boy with his cars, which you came to love and had a love for, as well.
    We will cherish the time you stayed with us in Kununurra, and after, when your family arrived.
    Condolences to your Beloved Wife Audrey, Children, Grandchildren and Family.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
    Rest in Peace Our Brother,
    Malcolm, Denise, Taylah, Luke and Cheyenne Conway

    It is with much sadness that we say goodbye to a friend and work colleague. Rick & I worked with Graham in the ATSIC Office, Katherine NT. He was a man with a big heart, a big smile and always very respectful, gentle and professional in his dealings with people he worked with. There wasn’t a day where he wouldn’t have that big smile which then made you smile. He went fishing with Rick on the Vic River, Timber Creek, NT chasing the elusive barramundi which was caught. Always a gentleman, he will be missed by many. Our love and thoughts are with his beautiful wife Audrey and his family on this day. Love from the Fletcher Family xxx

    I thought of you with love today
    but that is nothing new
    I thought about you yesterday
    and days before that too,

    I think of you in silence
    I often speak your name
    All I have are memories
    and your picture in a frame.

    Your memory is my keepsake
    with which I’ll never part
    God has you in His keeping
    I have you in my heart..
    We had a wonderful uncle,
    One who never really grew old;
    His smile was made of sunshine,
    And his heart was solid gold;
    His eyes were as bright as shining stars,
    And in his cheeks fair roses you see.
    We had a wonderful uncle,
    And that’s the way it will always be.
    But take heed, because
    He’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
    So let’s make sure
    He will like what he sees …
    I love you my unlce Graham we will miss you so much but we will always carry you in our hearts this is not a good bye this is just a see ya later my unlce 💞❤😊🌹🌹😭
