I’m Faye’s Brother and have known Rex for years. He was always at family gatherings and was always kind and friendly and a hard worker. He and Shona always supported Faye when John was severely injured in 2000 and continued to do so even after John passed earlier this year.I was saddened to hear that Rex had taken a turn for worse and sadly passed away. I am so pleased that I was able to share lunch with them at Summerset last year with Faye and John. My sincere condolences to Shona and family. Rest in Piece Rex. You will be sorely missed.

We all will never forget you Rex. Without the kindness that was shown to us as kids by both Rex and Shona, our lives would be very different.
Thank you for everything, on behalf of the boys and girls.
Love to all the Lawrence family. xo
