In Memory Of

Peter Egen Kelly

5th March 1953 – 30th November 2023.


Privately Farewelled.


Paula will be hosting a memorial gathering for Peter,

on Sunday, January 14, 2024 from 2 pm – 4pm,

at the family home in Happy Valley.


A funny, wise and loving man who walked his own path

and appreciated those who chose to walk alongside him.

Deeply reflective and an avid experimenter,

he was curious and interesting and endlessly surprising.


He will be missed.


Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky.

I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast.

My cheek like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed.

Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

I have kissed love on the lips, I have heard her song to the end.

I have struck my hand like a seal in the loyal hand of a friend.

I have known the peace of heaven, the comfort of work done well.

I have longed for death in the darkness and risen alive out of hell.

Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

I give a share of my soul to the world where my course is run.

I know that another shall finish the task I must leave undone.

I know that no flower, nor flint was in vain on the path I trod.

As one looks on a face through a window, through life, I have looked on God.
