    Our heartfelt condolences to Shelley, Jason, family and friends.
    We are neighbours of Cyril and will dearly miss our many chats and laughs with him We would look forward to seeing Cyril and Sadie walk by our house. Sadie always dressed in one of her many snazzy outfits. She was one of the most loved and well dressed dogs we have ever met.
    Shelley, Cyril always spoke highly and with great fondness of you and Jason. He was a very proud dad.
    I will miss seeing Cyril during our walks along the Gorge waterway. He would park his scooter, and walk to the end and back.
    Chris and I were sorry to have missed the Celebration of Life for Cyril, as we were away. I am sure it was a great tribute to a wonderful man,
    We will truly miss his presence in our neighbourhood. Rest In Peace Cyril.
