It has been three months since you have gone, there is no single day I don't miss you. Love you so much, then, and forever more xx

My cousin Alan had a special gift of stirring up a captivated audience with his story telling. His ability to tell a story was demonstrative of his intelligence, charm and wit. A man of many words, and opinions for that matter, life was never dull when Alan was a guest at our dinner table.
Generous with his time, he was a calm, gentle and truly a decent human being. From the fond memories I have of him, mainly from my childhood, his passing feels like an end of an era.
He was a lucky man to have had such a loving and doting wife in Kham. My heart goes out to her for her huge loss; and sorrow for his kids and grand kids for whom he was so proud. I’m grateful to Alan and Kham for their thoughtfulness and companionship they showed my parents (Vic & Joy). My Dad loved Alan and Kham’s company and always looked forward to their visits. If spirits were to unite Alan, Gwenda, Frank and Dad would be having one hell of a reunion party with much clinking of glasses, lashings of laughter and endless story telling from them all.
It was an honour to have known Alan, he will be remembered with kindness

I will miss Alan's wicked sense of humour. I'll always remember him with much love. He will be sadly missed.

I have only known Alan for a few years when he moved to Hornsby. He was my "eyes and ears" for the comings and goings at the front of our unit block.
We had a common link through our sense of humour and spent quite some time just talking about all manner of things.
My heartfelt condolences go to Kham and his family at this time.

May I join all of you to mourn the departing of such an amazing man.
Since his visit to Cambodia where we met, until the last email we exchanged, Alan always show his care and love. I always received email from Kham and Alan on my birthdays and every season greetings. Although he is leaving us, but his love and care will live forever.

We have know Alan and his family for over 30 years now – our first contact was at Lake Cathie when Alan was the then local Postmaster.
Both families had young children at that time and we enjoyed many family gatherings at the beach and one another’s homes.
The Lambert’s then moved to Brisbane, but we kept in touch. Even after Alan’s separation from his first wife Catherine, he maintained contact.
One amazing thing Alan did every year was to always ring us on our birthdays - this included right up to last year.
Since moving back to Sydney, he & Kham would always make the effort to see us on either the north or south journey when visiting his family in Brisbane.
Alan was always stirring the pot with his wicked sense of humour as most of you would probably appreciate. He was a generous friend and we always enjoyed our time with him.
We will miss him.......maybe on our birthdays this year we will pick up the phone and just say “thanks Alan for being a special friend”.-
