  1. Colin Phillips was a great friend, I can remember meeting Colin when I first moved over to the mainland from Tasmania. He was a funny Guy. He had the most adorable children and he loved them so much. He was so awesome to myself and my son Dylan. He will be very much missed. All my love Sheree and Dylan. PS. I remember what he said to me the first time I said come and get your tea. He said I can’t eat tea I drink tea lolz 😂

  5. Colin was one of the only people in this world who call me Sammy. although we were not related by blood, we called each other family and he treated me like one of his own. he was always there when I needed him. I miss him dearly and will never forget the kind, loving person he was.
