Allan we want to thank you so much for your support and care for us over 15+years. For the work you and June did for us and the community at Campfire in the Heart in Alice Springs. You travelled their each year for 15 years bring gifts and your love and service and encouragement. We miss you and those times we shared in community work, prayer and retreats. Sue loved being your hairdresser in Alice. We’re sure you will be happy to be reunited to June and you will both be looking down on us all with love and continued support. Rest In Peace. A life lived to the full. Sue & David

Condolences to Ian and Janelle and family at this time of grieving for your Dad, Father inlaw, Grand father, and great grandfather. So very blessed to have a man of God leading your family as Allan (Mr McLaren ) obviously has. Thankyou for allowing us to be part of your Dads ceremony.

Thinking and praying for the family at this time. It was a great blessing for me to know Allan and June at Campfire in the Heart. I appreciated so much Allan's honesty, his faithfulness, his encouragement, his laugh, his absolutely spot on advice to me about being a maverick, his example of hard work, his theological curiosity, his openness about hard things which meant a great deal to me and the love between him and June. His shoes stayed at Campfire and I saw them every day for a long time and thought with gratitude of him. He once said about going through a difficult time it was like being in the ocean and eventually you stopped struggling against it and all you could do was let it pass over you like a wave. And at the end your face would be changed. I very much look forward to seeing Allan and June again. with love, Celia
