My beautiful Mum

Such wonderful memories I will hold close forever

Especially your sense of humour and wit.

I’m sure family and friends will have lots of those moments too.

Rest now mum

Even though your story has ended, We will all be able to share so many moments of fun, love and laughter of time spent with you.

Love you so much and my journey in life without you, will be harder than I imagined.

  9. Aunty Joan will always be remembered in my mind as part of those exciting holidays when we would fly over from NZ to visit the family. I remembered the delicatessen she and Uncle Peter owned, the Dutch liquorice. I remembered BBQs and nice cakes. I remembered Oma’s overgrown garden. For a small boy it was an exciting time! And for so many of the family to be in Moe, it will always be remembered as a special place for me. In later years, when Paul tragically passed away, Aunty Joan would say to me, Paul was almost the same age as you. I felt her sadness.

    Farewell Aunty Joan, Rest In Peace. My deepest condolences to Ray and Fiona and families. Lots of love from us all in Sydney. Rob, Leanne and the kids.
