A poem by David Harkins:

You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes,
love and go on.


Jason Green – in the care of Crane Funeral Services.


Family and friends gathered at the WIlson Chapel, Springvale Botanical Cemetery, on June 3rd 2016 to farewell Jason. The Celebrant Peter Sellars recounted many memories of Jason that he had been told about by Jason’s mum Julie. He was remembered by those at the Service as a sometimes mischievous, but loving and caring companion. His Mum will miss him dearly, and his friends were heartbroken after their time with him was also cut suddenly short. Jason will be sadly missed and always remembered.

  1. You fell asleep without goodbye, but memories of you will never die.

    It’s been less than 2 weeks since we last caught up. We were just reminiscing about our younger days and how we used to hangout everyday and the fun we had. Time may pass and fade away but the memories of you Jason will always stay. I will treasure those memories and all the good times we had. We’ve known each other since we were kids in primary school all the way to now and I still can’t believe you’ve been taken so soon.

    Rest in peace and know that you will never be forgotten.

  2. Autumn’s winds,
    blow away the clouds that mass over the moon’s light,
    and the mists that darkens our mind,
    do thou sweep away as well.
    Now you’ve gone,
    well, what must I think of it?
    Like a flower buried beneath the sands,
    half buried in the ground,
    your life,
    which has not flowered, comes
    to this sad end.

    My dear friend,
    Just when the fog was beginning to lift…
    Forever I carry you with me,
    And how fitting that heaven cried after we had a chance to say our final goodbye.

  3. The Green Tribute to Jason
    on 1/3/1983 a bubbly gentle soul entered our lives, Jason Alan Green. He was always a fun, loving kind boy who loved everyone around him.
    His grandmother Marlene, who adored him, named him the “Lolly King” and she was the “Lolly Queen”. They cherished many good times together.
    Jason loved fishing with his grandfather, Cyril, who was a like a father to him. I remember a time when he visited Mildura for a holiday, my dad Cyril, and Jason, wen fishing to catch the illusive Murray Cod. Usually they came back with a bag full of yellow belly bream (and did so on this occasion), sunburnt bodies and happy souls together.
    Over a few beers they would make the best beer battered fish and chips, we all waited with baited breathe as they were super yummy.
    Jason loved his mum Julie, they were ”thick as thieves” and he was a very caring and loyal carer to her. Julie said he usually over spent, one time spending $80 on fish that he took all the way to Mildura to share with his grandfather. Together in Mildura they picked the vines, Jason and Rosie played cards, and he was often out the back playing ball with Penny. We spent many fun Christmases together.
    Jason was a beautiful person, Julie would often comment he was colour blind, he never cared what colour your skin was he only cared about having you as his friend. He has friends from all walks of life. He loved his online computer friends, and cherished his school friendships. They meant the world to him.
    Taken from us all way to young, we know you are in heaven now Jason. We miss and love you always and forever Jason. Love Julie, Karen, Wendy, Cassie, Matilda and Oliver. xxxxxxxxxx RIP

  4. Jason you will always hold a very special place in our hearts. So many fond memories of a kind gentle-man. May you be free! We love and miss you. Love Auntie Karen, Trevor and Erik xxx

    “Come to the edge,” he said.
    “We can’t, we’re afraid!” they responded.
    “Come to the edge,” he said.
    “We can’t, we will fall!” they responded.
    “Come to the edge,” he said.
    And so they came.
    And he pushed them.
    And they flew.”
    ― Guillaume Apollinaire

  5. Dearest Jason, As I think of you memories of your sweet smile and gentle nature flood my mind. Tears overflow with sadness for a life cut short, taken so quickly. You graced us all with your unassuming presence and that I am and will be forever grateful. You are loved and missed deeply. Sleep peacefully and fly free. Love Aunty Wendy Cousin’s, Cassie, Matilda, and Oliver Xx
