A storm rumbles thru my heart
The pain, the hurt I have caused you
But I live in hope for a fresh new start
My darling wife I adore you.
Life has dealt us many blows
That has changed us along the way
But Faith and Trust can heal our wounds
In hope of a better day.
Our commitment to each other
All those years ago
Still runs thru my veins my love
So now its time to show.
I stand before you now my dear
The woman I cherish and adore
Who has made us a beautiful family & home
That I’ll love for ever more.

address transport-related issues in
Hosted by Member for Chaffey Tim
Whetstone, Mr Wingard will meet with
community members and local transport
operators in the Riverland and Mallee on

their product to the market,” Mr Wingard
“Roads throughout regional South

increasing truck movements, yet the State
Government’s spending on road mainte-
nance in these areas remains stagnant.”
During the two-day tour, Mr Mingard
will address community transport and
investigate the impacts of reductions in
weight limits on ferries.
“I look forward to meeting with stake-
holders in the transport industry, as well as
growers in the community who are impact-

you keep the audience in
