  10. To Ian, Chloe, Lachie and families
    Sending love to you all on the loss of your beautiful Vonnie. We loved our time we spent with you on those freezing cold days at the footy – where you would send Ian off to get us a nice hot cup of coffee. I think we met up at every AFL football ground in Australia and we would have a good old chat and laugh and of course barracked for our boys!
    Sleep peacefully Vonnie.

  31. Dear Ian, Chloe and Lachie,
    Our sincere condolences to you and your families.
    We first met the ‘unforgettable Vonnie’ when our son Ed began Yr 7 with Lachie.
    To us, Vonnie was brave and bold and bright and beautiful, yet always kind and gentle and honest and generous. A fine friend.
    Vonnie visited us in our home regularly, ever since our first introduction in 2002.
    Her presence was without fail vibrant, colourful, interesting and entertaining!
    We will miss Vonnie very much.

    Vonnie was my friend. She welcomed me when Mitch came to college and I joined the parents group. Always interested in others , kind and caring and happy to help. We would wave across the ground when Geelong played Brisbane , and chat on the phone catching up with news. I’m proud to have known her and my family send our kind thoughts.

    Our thoughts are with you people as no doubt the whole district is during this time
    You and Vonnie have been almost a part of many families in our community. Your family has impacted and helped us all usually during the difficult times we all confront as farmers over many years
    Hopefully knowing the enormous respect people have for your family helps in some small way
