I hope I was never that brutal with you Stephen. You knew I loved you and will love you all my life, just like you loved me all your life. Remember when we used to sing this together, in the car, on the way in to work!!!

As the anniversary approaches, I keep thinking of the time mum, Lorraine and I stayed at Aunty Wendy and Uncle Stephen's place for the week at Denham Court. Laura must have been about two years old and I'm pretty sure Katie wasn't around yet as mum was heavily pregnant with my brother. This is the week that Laura bit my boob when we were sitting in the lounge room - did I ever tell you about that, Laura? I remember the day Aunty Wendy and Uncle Steve got back from where ever it was they went (I'm thinking it was a work conference although I am not entirely sure that's where they were). I was only eight at the time. I remember Uncle Steve bringing home hot chips rolled up in brown butchers paper. Mum and Aunty Wendy weren't in the dining room for some reason - perhaps they were in the kitchen next door. My sister and I were left in the dining room with Uncle Stephen. He was singing a song (I have no memory of what that song was) but Lorraine and I were trying not to giggle. For some reason, our eight and ten year old minds thought that his singing was funny. Looking back I realise he knew this and so that of course made him sing even more, but he was pretending not to see my sister and I laugh. Anyway, the memory itself is quite vague. I vaguely see the black and white floor, the doorway to the hall and Uncle Steve singing something. It's the FEELING that I remember most. Coming to visit Steve and Wendy always felt good. We loved it there and never wanted to go home. Just being in Uncle Stephen's presence was warm and comforting and it still saddens me to know that my boys will never really get to know him. So Uncle Stephen, I hope you know how much you are missed and realise just how often I think of you. Thank you for the beautiful memories x

That was lovely Shari, just exactly how we feel. He was always warm and comforting. Really difficult to carry on without him.

It’s now been almost a year to the day when you left us Daddy. I still remember waking up, Wednesday morning, the phone call and mum screaming for us to get dressed. The trip to the hospital was never ending, and to finally get there and be placed in a waiting room almost killed me….. Through the walls you could hear them trying to defibrillate you and that sound was even worse than silence. I feel a swell of love for doctors, nurses and paramedics that were so persistent in their attempts to revive you and bring you back to us. A tireless 2 and half hours of trying were spent before anyone came to talk to us. To see you lying cold and colourless on that hospital bed shattered me completely to pieces, and to this day I’ll never ever be the same. I miss you with ALL of my heart and I need you. I’ll never ever understand why you had to leave us, and every day I want you back. Some days I feel like going downstairs to get out my Bass guitar and play with you, but I know I’ll never be able to do that again. You were the most amazing man I knew , My hero , My dad, Mr Fix-it , Mr Rock-band, Mr Smart , The king of Daddy jokes , and just sooooo much more. Just writing this makes me feel like a blade is piercing my heart, I can’t breathe, and cannot see through all of the tears. Sometimes I wake up, and catch you out of the corner of my eye, just to be thrust back into reality and know it’s not possible. Sometimes I think I hear you singing, but it’s all in my head , I can’t believe that I’ll never hear you sing ever again . I know it’s impossible, but just in case, I fully intend to wish for you back this Christmas. Some may think I’m absolutely mental, but I don’t care what other people think of me. I don’t care if I never have any friends ever again , and I’m poor , uneducated , mute , deaf , a complete failure at life or just anything , all I know is that if I have you back , we’re going to be okay. It wasn’t your time to go, and I’ll NEVER forget it. To lose you at only 18yrs old, I feel cheated and I cannot help to wonder where you are or who your with. I Love You Daddy. Rest In Peace Stephen Joseph Bailey 19.10.11. Family o' mine: I should like to send you a sunbeam, or the twinkle of some bright star, or a tiny piece of the downy fleece that clings to a cloud afar. I should like to send you the essence of a myriad sun-kissed flowers, or the lilting song as it floats along, of a brook through fairy bowers. I should like to send you the dew-drops that glisten at break of day, and then at night the eerie light that mantles the Milky Way. I should like to send you the power that nothing can overflow - the power to smile and laugh the while a-jouneying through life you go. But these are mere fanciful wishes; I'll send you a Godspeed instead, and I'll clasp your hand - then you'll understand all the things I have left unsaid.

I had the pleasure of playing drums in the band 'Milestone' with Stephen way back in 1983. I was listening to some old tapes tonight & thought how good that band was. Stephen was a great bloke & musical legend. I had no idea he had passed away and was extremely saddened to learn of his passing. RIP mate. Paul Thurston

Elvis Presley - Always On My Mind (1985 overdub) Maybe I didn't treat you Quite as good as I should have Maybe I didn't love you Quite as often as I could have Little things I should have said and done I just never took the time You were always on my mind You were always on my mind Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died Give me, give me one more chance To keep you satisfied, satisfied Maybe I didn't hold you All those lonely, lonely times And I guess I never told you I'm so happy that you're

Gods Very Own- Angel Stephen you will be missed dearly. We give thanks for your life and write these words to comfort Wendy and the children in their moments of grief. A vacuum and emptiness you left behind. Your goodness and and love will radiate and always be remembered. You will always be remembered as a best "model" father ,loving tender nurturing, gentle and kind. You found expression in works of music and song. You were a loving friend full of humour,gentleness and understanding. You were unequalled in the art of confidence and trust. You touched and blessed people that came your way each day It is divine grace that ultimately called you Home. Prakash and I will never forget your goodness to our family when we arrived and were new to Australia. In your own way you reached out to us and made us comfortable and welcome. You were kind ,generous and selfless in your giving,always willing to help. We fondly remember what "Only You" could do and did best! Who could make those special Roast dinners like you did? Who could make the "Steven Special" Spaghetti Bolognaise ? Who could play music with the love and passion the way you did? You had your way with music and song and played with such passion that soon got the young ones to check music out. Who can foreget the Red Back Spider on the Toilet seat song? Who can forget your smiling face? We look not to the things that are seen But to the things that are unseen for the things that are seen are transient But the things that are unseen are eternal! Lots of love Prakash ,Melissa Rohan & Rhea Words ultimatley fall short for the loving man your were and it is hard to describe the loss we feel,the vacuum and emptiness. Your legacy of love will remain with us forever! We have loved you and you will hold forever a special place in our hearts.

Dearest Stephen. I miss you with all my heart. I will never forget the fun we all had together, all the late night dinners, watching movies, and of course your beloved music. Watching your journey, meeting and marrying the girl of your dreams, and having 3 wonderful children is a memory that will stay with me forever. You are my son's godfather, and followed your role very seriously. I thank you for being there for him in his times of need. I wish you were still here with us, but that isn't to be. Your beautiful wife and children and all the souls you have touched will miss you every day. Rest in peace Brutus. Love you forever. Xxxxx

Thank You Linda. Stephen loved you and your family very much. Thank you for being so sweet to him, making him baked dinners in the middle of the night after he and John worked late, making him a part of your family. He truly appreciated it.

Dear Stephen, You suffered in pain, never did you complain, u always wore that smile on ur face n that twinkle in ur eyes. You were a perfect husband to our Darling Wendy and an adorable father your kids. A man filled with simplicity, love and concern for not only family but everyone around, that was what made u stand out differently from them all..... A man who brought a spark of hope to all those people in difficult situations, with his music ruled the world and set the people's hearts ablaze, a responsible, loving and caring man is what I know you and will always remember you to be. You are just gone away for a while, but the footprints of your memories will be in our hearts throughout our lifetime. We all Love you Stephen, especially my son Akash who misses you to bits, Sonia and Sandra too xoxo <3

The pain of losing you continues it hasn't healed at all Although the days keep rolling The tears for you still fall I see the signs you leave me to let me know you're here But still I long to hold you And always keep you near. Oh how I miss you How I miss you so If i'd known you were leaving I would never have let you go. They say that times a healer But what they didn't know How much my heart was broken The day you had to go. It seems there is no ending To this pain I feel You meant more than life to me This pain will still remain. I wish that I could have you Back here with me again but instead I send you my love Unti we meet again. My perfect love Stephen, I miss you, I need you, I want you, I love you, forever and ever. My darling Stephen, you were the perfect husband, the perfect father, the perfect brother, the perfect friend, we will never know why you had to go. While God holds you in his possession, we will always hold you in our hearts. Love forever, your desolate wife, Wendy
