GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

Although there are many reasons we love them, the importance of friends in our lives makes losing them difficult. We miss their unique personalities, unconditional love and constant presence in our lives.

Grief is the last act of love we have to give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was a great love.

We aim to acknowledges the bond forged between players and officials and the Bentleigh Football Netball Club community during the time they spent with us. 

In memory of past team mates, officials and members of the Bentleigh Football Netball Club
(Formerly Bentleigh Methodists/Bentleigh Uniting ).
