  3. Much loved mother to Alison, mother-in-law to Stephen and Nana to Dirk, Kyla and Sean.

    It is difficult to find the right words, so I have borrowed those from the poem “Although Your Gone” by Shannon Walker (2015)

    Although you’re gone, I’m not alone,
    And never shall I be,
    For the precious memories of the bond we shared
    Will never depart from me.

    Our love surpassed the ups and downs
    And helped us along the way,
    And that same love will give me strength
    To manage this loss each day.

    On my mind and in my heart,
    Mum, you shall forever be,
    For just as much as I am a part of you,
    You are a part of me!

  4. Aunty Jean, Still remember the veggies on site to pick. The years have gone so quick and with age we don’t seem to see our relations enough. Both you and Uncle Norm have always shown us a couple that were made for each other and always smiling. Condolences to Uncles Norm and extended family. Robert Tite and family.

  5. To our beautiful mum, mother-in law and nana.
    We have such wonderful memories of you and although it is hard at the moment, we know we will always smile when we think of you and all the special times we had with you.
    When those we treasure become memories, memories become our treasures.
    Forever in our hearts.
    Miss you
    Di, Geoff and Scott
